Our 2019 Annual Report

We believe that children everywhere deserve more from life than the basics for survival such as food, water and shelter. Children have the right to grow up feeling loved, safe and supported. They are entitled to a happy childhood, and the chance to build a better future for themselves. Thank you to everyone who helped us be there for children when they needed us most in 2019.

Our mission to protect children from the life-long consequences of growing up alone faced immense challenges in 2019 as a succession of conflicts and natural disasters separated families and left children without parental care. These challenges served as a reminder that our work must go on, with renewed energy and determination. Thank you for helping us to improve children’s lives worldwide.
