We continue working to reach 100, 000 people, including 32,000 children and adolescents.

It has been four months since the September earthquakes that caused the death of 369 people, 250, 000 collapsed homes and millions of people living with uncertainty and fear. In Save the Children we continue working in the affected areas to keep supporting children and their families who still need help.

According to data from the Federal Government, 60,302 homes require partial or total reconstruction, only 25% of them have been rebuilt, so thousands of families are still living in shelters, yards, dangerous buildings or even on the street.

Children are the most vulnerable in this situation, so our work can not stop until we can guarantee normalcy in their lives.
