Children in Crisis

When crisis strikes, SCAN speaks up.

Unthinkable conflict. Unbearable poverty. Unimaginable levels of need. These crises and more pose a grave threat to kids’ futures. Millions around the world have had their childhoods stolen. It’s not fair — but our elected leaders have the power to help.

Our Mission

We champion the rights of the world’s 2.3 billion children. 

Surviving is just the beginning for at-risk kids. In the face of ever-growing humanitarian need, SCAN is urging Congress to fund urgent and long-term support for struggling families and communities — advocating for programs that keep children healthy, learning and safe from harm. 

Help Child Refugees Survive and Thrive

Our leaders can build a world where child refugees grow up healthy, educated and safe  no matter what disaster they’re facing.
