Save the Children fights for children's rights every single day across the globe.

Hundreds of thousands of children and their families are in danger after Cyclone Idai struck Mozambique, Malawi, and Zimbabwe on 21st March. Now that the true scale of the impact and the nature of the devastation caused by this powerful storm is becoming clear, our Partner, Save the Children, is launching an urgent appeal to raise £1 million to support its emergency response. Any car donations you direct to Save the Children at this time will be added to this vital fund.

More about Save The Children

Save the Children is an international charity that believes in saving children - to change their futures and ensure they don't just survive, but thrive. Working in 68 countries around the world, including the support of hundreds of projects here in the UK, Save the Children is passionate that every child should have the opportunity to make their mark on the world and help build a better future.

Your old car donation could help this incredible charity stand side by side with children in the toughest places to be a child - protecting them when they are in danger, and giving them the chance to learn.

Child protection

Every single child in the world should grow up in a safe, supportive family environment free from violence, protected from exploitation, abuse and neglect - but millions around the world aren't. Children are living on the streets, moving across borders, in refugee camps or institutions. Whether they are at risk of child marriage, dangerous work or being recruited as a child soldier, Save the Children's child protection teams are working tirelessly to keep them safe and your car donation could help.

Child Poverty

In 2017 Save the Children helped bring 1.6 million children out of extreme poverty. Your old car donation could help the charity continue to fight child poverty and avoid the devastating effects that can last a lifetime. Poor children are most at risk of disease, malnutrition and a lack of education. There’s a greater chance they’ll suffer early marriage, physical violence or child labour. Save the Children campaigns to make sure governments address these issues and deliver on their promises to end hunger, extreme poverty and preventable child deaths by 2030.

Saving Children's Lives

Save the Children has helped to halve child mortality over the last 25 years. This is a success story, but the problem isn't solved. 5.9 million children still die each year, many from causes that could be prevented, such as diarrhoea, pneumonia, and malnutrition. Your car donation could help Save the Children to continue to put pressure on governments to improve the health of millions and to send doctors, nurses and health teams to hard-to-reach communities around the world where they save lives.

Child Hunger

Nearly a quarter of children in the world suffer permanent damage because they don’t get the nutritious food they need. They are left with weakened immune systems; vulnerable to infection, disease and death. Your old car donation could help Save the Children teams provide support on breastfeeding and complementary feeding, screen for malnutrition, distribute vitamin supplements and help families improve their income. As well as pioneering new methods of predicting food crises so governments can take action sooner.

Children's Rights

Despite every government in the world promising to protect, respect and fulfill every child’s fundamental rights to survival and development, every day those rights are still violated. Progress has been made, but many countries still fail to prioritise and promote children’s rights, especially for those living in the worst poverty and deprivation or affected by conflict. Your car donation to Save the Children can help fight for those children every day.


Education means stability and hope and offers life-changing opportunity. Save the Children's education programmes helped 841,000 children in 2017, but around the world, millions of children have still never seen the inside of a classroom. Children are forced to drop out of school because their classes are overcrowded or because they’re a girl, or come from a poor family, or live in a rural area. Even in the UK, children’s lives are shaped by their education and the poorest children do less well at school, with low literacy linked to low pay and unemployment. Save the Children is working tirelessly to make sure every child has the chance to realise their full potential and make their mark on the world. Your old car donation could help achieve that goal.

Humanitarian Emergencies

Your car donation could help children caught up in emergencies. Right now, Save the Children is running emergency appeals for its work in Indonesia, Yemen, Syria and for the Rohingya in Bangladesh. You can see that every area of Save the Children's work is vital and however your donation is used it will make a difference to a child's life.
