As increasing numbers of Pakistani families flee their homes due to intense fighting in the country's North West Frontier Province, (NWFP) Save the Children is moving quickly to address the health needs of children and their families displaced by the fighting.
A year after an earthquake devastated the southwest Sichuan province of China, rebuilding is well underway. Support from the Chinese government and from across China has been impressive, but gaps still exist where targeted interventions can improve children's lives.
Save the Children is appealing for worldwide public support as it launches a broad relief effort to assist hundreds of thousands of children and families forced from their homes and villages by intensified fighting in Pakistan's Northwest Frontier Province (NWFP).
Save the Children, a global humanitarian agency working to create positive change for children in the United States, announces the launch of a nationwide campaign to help provide baby blankets to thousands of infants in need in the U.S., in collaboration with Toys"R"Us, Inc., the world's leading dedicated toy and baby products retailer. The Bundled in Hope campaign is the latest initiative in an ongoing partnership between Save the Children, Toys"R"Us, Inc., and the Toys"R"Us Children's Fund.
