Our work has saved more children’s lives than any other organisation.

However thousands of children still die from preventable causes each and every day.

Our teams are working hard to provide nutritious food, safe clean drinking water and vaccines to more children around the world.

Child Protection

There are many children around the world who are living in crisis. These children have been left with no place to call home. Leaving them exposed to abuse and neglect. We work around the clock to ensure children have the protection and safety they need. Read More…

Education

Children in Ireland are lucky that primary and secondary school are free. Not every child is as lucky. Millions of children around the world do not have access to education due to natural disasters, war, because of their gender or they are forced to work. Find out More…

Nutrition

Malnutrition is responsible for almost half of all childhood deaths. Even though we produce enough food on the planet to feed everyone. Children the world over are at risk and our teams are working hard to help them. Even in the hardest to reach areas. Read More…

Water

Fresh, clean water is necessary to survive. Yet children all over the world are getting sick from drinking dirty water. If children do not have access to clean water for drinking and washing they are in danger. Find out More…

Our work does make a difference. We have helped reduce the number of children who die under the age of 5 by 50% since 1990. But we cannot stop here.

We have made great progress but we need to do more. We need your help to continue our work, to be there for children when they need us.
