Save the Children is one of the largest Humanitarian Response Organisations in the world. We have been responding to emergencies across the globe since 1919. Today, we have the tools and resources needed respond to the needs of children and families as soon as disaster strikes.

Children are often the worst impacted in an emergency. And with Fiji is prone to natural disasters, we have a population of some of the most vulnerable children in children in the world.

Save the Children was one of the largest organisations on the ground and helping communities following Tropical Cyclone Winston. We have built strong relationships with partners and communities badly-affected by the storm, and we are ready to protect children the next time disaster strikes.
