World Humanitarian Day 2020: A thank you to our heroes!

On the 19th of August of each year, we mark World Humanitarian Day (WHD) to pay tribute to aid workers who exert every effort through humanitarian service. This WHD we want to highlight the efforts of our staff at Save the Children, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite making it harder than ever for humanitarians to stay and deliver for children and those most in need, our teams have remained present and more determined than ever.

 Here are the stories of just a few of our heroes!
