Hurricane Florence

As Hurricane Florence continues to intensify into a life-threatening storm – with 140 mile per hour winds and heavy rains – Save the Children is assembling a team in North Carolina to help children and families bracing for the powerful storm.

We continue to communicate with national and state partners to assess children’s immediate needs in response to this powerful hurricane. We have deployed our emergency response team and pre-positioned essential child-focused supplies. But we need your help to continue this important work.

“Children are always among the most vulnerable when disaster strikes, and our thoughts and hearts go out to children and families along the coastline of the Carolinas,” said Jeanne-Aimee De Marrais, Save the Children’s senior advisor for U.S. emergencies. “With more than one million people facing evacuation orders, we hope they are able to return to their homes soon. But while families are displaced during this crisis, Save the Children will be there to help them recover.” Save the Children has a strong track record of responding to emergencies, we are still on the ground in Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, in Puerto Rico rebuilding after Hurricane Maria and in Florida after Hurricane Irma.

Save the Children emergency response teams set up child friendly spaces in evacuation shelters, coordinated emergency distributions of child-centric materials, and played a leading role in getting children back to learning and returning to normalcy. We plan to continue our efforts on all three recovery efforts into 2019.
