Save the Children UK "fight for children in the UK and around the world who suffer from poverty, disease, injustice and violence, working with them to find lifelong answers to the problems they face." [1]

"Save the Children was founded in 1919, as a response to conditions in Europe immediately following the First World War. ...
"Initially Save the Children allocated money to organisations working with children in Germany, Austria, France, Belgium, the Balkans, Hungary and for Armenian Refugees in Turkey. It was not anticipated that it would be a permanent organisation and its first workers were taken on six-week contracts. But in the immediate post war period, Save the Children had to deal with emergency after emergency." [2]


"The income we raised this year - £163.2 million - is the highest we have ever achieved. It means we have been able to increase spending on our charitable activities by 25 per cent. 43.2% Donations & gifts £70.5m; 35.6% Grants £58.1m." (Accessed Oct 2006)
