Save the children

The UK Fashion and Textile Association are proud to partner with Save the Children in 2013, raising much-needed funds to help the most vulnerable children in the UK and across the world.

Save the Children works in 120 countries. They save children's lives, fight for their rights and help them fulfil their potential.

We have chosen Save the Children because of the work they do to stop the needless deaths of millions of children under five every year, and to improve children's lives here in the UK and overseas. No child is born to die, but millions of children die every year from illnesses we know how to treat or prevent, such as diarrhoea and pneumonia.

Save the Children help millions of children through their work on the ground. They run world-class programmes to save children's lives, and challenge world leaders to keep to their promises to give the poorest children a better chance in life.

Let's help more children wake up to a brighter future. If you'd like to find out more about Save the Children's life-saving work, please visit savethechildren.org.uk
