Save the Children protects children from abuse, neglect, exploitation, and violence in all regions of the world. In the United States, we provide critical services in the aftermath of disasters and emergencies. Our programs focus on the most vulnerable children while aiming for the safety and well-being of all children. Working with governments, international organizations, and local community partners, we strive to create lasting change with improvements in policy and services that protect children whether in a natural disaster, conflict, or development setting. In 2013, we reached 21 million children trough our child protection programs, including children who were abused, exploited or neglected. Thanks to our work, Honduras became the 37th country to ban corporal punishments, including striking, strapping and caning children.
