Save The Children

Save The Children is an independent charity fighting for the world's poorest children. They are fighting for children's rights; including proper health care, education and protection. Today they announced that they are launching a public appeal in order to raise enough money to provide emergency relief to over 15,000 children and 5000 families in the region of Andhra Pradesh in India. They have experienced flash flooding since early October, and that unless they can provide sanitation and emergency relief, thousands of children will die due to waterborne diseases. Save The Children is handing out vital hygiene kits to households in the poorest areas that are experiencing the worst of the flooding. These include clean water and essential medical supplies.
