Hurricane Ian: how to help

As the national leader in protecting children in emergencies, Save the Children has supported the most critical needs of children in emergencies along the Gulf Coast since 2005, including Hurricanes Irma and Michael.

Our response efforts prioritize the needs of children and families in the following ways:

We put essential family supplies – like diapers and wipes, cribs, strollers, baby washbasins and hygiene kits – into the hands of moms, dads and caregivers who need them most after a disaster.

We’ve set up safe play areas in evacuation shelters – called child-friendly spaces – where kids can be kids again, express themselves and start coping, while their parents can rest, get help and begin their family’s recovery.

We are ensuring that children have access to safe, quality early education after emergencies, providing childcare centers and preschools with supplies, funding and support to help them reopen quickly.

We build resilience in children and families through social and emotional support.
