Welcome to the world Rozina! The first baby to be born our new health facility, just one week after it opened. Swipe 👉 to see more of her story.

Rohingya refugee and first time mum, Humaira, 20, sits cradling her new born baby at the maternity ward run by our team in Cox’s Bazar.
Humaira explains: “The staff treated me very well. They took such good care of me and my baby. And they are still checking up on me.
I am so happy for their help and very thankful.”
Thanks to your amazing support we’ve opened a new 16-bed Primary Health Care Centre in Cox’s Bazar, so both Rohingya and Bangladeshi children and families have they care they need.

“If one man can destroy everything, why can't one girl change it?” Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai has always fought ferociously for children's rights to education. Let's celebrate her courage this #MalalaDay!

‘She isn’t scared of anybody.’
ISIS fighters stopped 12 year old Dina on the street and chastised her for not wearing a hijab. When she dared to stand up for herself one of the men cut off her hair. She has worked courageously since to rebuild her life in #Mosul.

Leave a 🙂 below if little Laila brings a smile to your face!
Thanks to your support, Laila is now reaching a healthy weight after suffering from moderate acute malnutrition.
She had caught fever and diarrhoea on the journey from Myanmar to Bangladesh and lost a lot of weight, only weighing 6.8kg for her 74.3cm height; after a month with our team, now she weighs 7.3kg.

We've also helped Laila’s family through digging a tube well near her home, setting up clean toilets near her home, and providing her parents with a hygiene kit.

Thank you to incredible young fundraisers Emilia, Phoebe, Olive and Nuala, who raised £155 for Syria’s children with a cake bake!
The team were inspired to make a difference after learning more about the war in their lessons – frequently saying ‘the war has been going on for seven years, can you imagine?!’
Every day we’re inspired by kind and empathetic children like them. Thank you so much Emilia, Phoebe, Olive and Nuala: this shout out is for you!

A moment of comfort can make all the difference.
Maya and her family had to leave their home in Yemen to escape the violence. They fled to Somalia, where incredible team members like Saredo provide the comfort and support that children and families like Maya's desperately need.

Whether you're in the middle of a heatwave or not, access to clean and safe drinking water matters!

Anwara, 11 years old, says. “My favourite thing to do is to draw pictures in the Child Friendly Space, and have them displayed on the wall. I have shown the pictures to my mum and she was really happy and encouraged me to draw more. I have really enjoyed being part of the project and drawing pictures with my friends".
Anwara is just one of the Rohingya children who took part in our art and music workshops in the refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Children there learned to paint, were taught important lifesaving messages such as the importance of handwashing and using safe water, and were encouraged to express themselves through colour and art.

"In a refugee camp, lifesaving measures come in many different forms ... education, especially arts education, is one of them.”
No matter what they've gone through, every child deserves a future.
