Home > Publications > Children Without Appropriate Care

Millions of children are living without the loving, nurturing care that allows them to be safe and grow up enjoying their childhood. Children living in institutional care fall into this category but so do other children who are neglected by, abandoned by or separated from their families as a result of chronic poverty, parental illness, stigma or discrimination, migration, war or displacement. Save the Children is working to strengthen the caring capacity of families and to build family-based alternative care options for children who cannot remain with their families.
