Coronavius, the biggest global health, social and economic crisis of our lifetime and has worsened the vulnerability of the more than 5,500 families served by Save the Children in Italy and Spain.
Save the Children created a special program to provide comprehensive support to the needs of families and their children who are now experiencing an extremely serious situation. Resources are provided for access to basic food and basic necessities, as well as school reinforcement and individualized psychosocial support in a telematic way to alleviate the effects of isolation, uncertainty and stress.
In the current situation, there is a risk that the educational and social gap will widen even further. To address these inequalities and leave no one behind, children are also provided with technological equipment and internet connection. This allows us to maintain a continuous intervention that ensures the educational support that these minors need.
- Provide cash transfers and food vouchers to vulnerable families to enable them to keep their children safe and healthy.
- Distribute hygiene materials to help children and their families protect themselves from coronavirus
- Provide educational and psychosocial support
