Save the Children launches $100m appeal


Save the Children has launched a $100m appeal - its biggest ever - to help children and their families in some of the world's most fragile nations during the coronavirus pandemic.


"The pandemic is now spreading across the world's poorest countries further crippling health systems where children are already missing out on life-saving treatment for malaria, pneumonia, and malnutrition," Save the Children's Chief Executive Inger Ashing said in a statement. "It will leave many children without caregivers, out of school and in danger. We only have a matter of weeks to take swift action that will determine how many lives we can save."


Save the Children estimates about 1.5 billion children around the world are out of school, which in poorer nations could increase the risk of them being forced into work or marriage, she said.
