Thanks to supporters like Castle Water, Save the Children could draw £152,340 from Save the Children’s Emergency fund, which will bring life-saving support to approximately 38,800 people in areas affected by the flood. Save the Children are giving out shelter kits and emergency items, such as kitchen sets, blankets and jerry cans, so that families can stay warm.
They also delivering clean water via water trucking whilst flood water is pumped from homes and schools. Displacement caused by the floods means it’s much harder for families to access healthcare and so Save the Children are running a mobile health clinic so that children can still receive the essential services they need, as well as conducting awareness sessions in communities to help promote hygiene practices that combat the spread of illnesses such as cholera and COVID-19.
