Description

{"ops":[{"insert":"As the global death rate increases due to the Coronavirus, children in over 120 countries are vulnerable to getting sick, living in quarantine or possibly being separated from their families. School closings are disrupting children’s education and the risks to the psychological impact this outbreak has on children grows.\n\nEqually concerning is the possible spread of the virus to countries experiencing instability and conflict where the impact could more severe.\n\nKeeping children safe is at the core of our work. Here is how Save the Children is responding to this crisis.\n"},{"insert":{"image":"https://mcusercontent.com/7351ecb7a5e21e5f92aad4180/images/900e241c-fe0b-488d-98a4-d50b111be118.png"}},{"insert":"\nWe are preparing response plans for all 120 countries where we work, with special attention to scenarios of high transmission rates in low-resource countries.\n\nWe are training health staff, ensuring that our staff stay healthy and providing health clinics with enough soap and hygiene supplies to prevent the spread of infection.\n\nWe are also prepared to provide children and their families with supplies including food, hygiene items, household supplies, and items that are specific to the needs of children.\n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"Additional Information:"},{"insert":"\nIn terms of Save the Children's programmatic response, globally we started emergency response activities in China, Pakistan and Hong Kong in early February, and are preparing to deploy our Emergency Health Unit especially if there are outbreaks in countries with very week health infrastructure. Many of our most affected member countries (Italy, South Korea) are already providing resources for parents and kids in their countries.\n\nHere in the U.S, we are working with our program staff and partners to make sure that children can continue to learn and receive meals - particularly in our program areas where lack of connectivity, safe childcare and food insecurity are major issues. In many areas where we work up to 100% of the kids get free or reduced fee school breakfast and lunches.\n\nIf you'd like to make a donation in Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Zcash (ZEC), or Bitcoin Cash (BCH), please visit here: "},{"attributes":{"link":"https://bitcointuesday.org/SavetheChildren"},"insert":"https://bitcointuesday.org/SavetheChildren"},{"insert":"\n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"Note: We are a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
