About our US programmes


GSK is proud to support Save the Children’s emergency response work in the U.S. through our partnership. We have worked together in the U.S. since 2015, providing immediate emergency relief to children and families when disaster strikes and working to build safer and more resilient communities.

“Our partnership with GSK has been crucial to our ability to meet the needs of children and families after large scale disaster. Through GSK’s continued support Save the Children is ready to meet the needs of children and families who are impacted by emergencies during their most challenging times,” said David Niersbach, Head of US Emergencies, Protection, and Psychosocial Programs

Local Program Impact

GSK’s generous funding allows Save the Children to respond immediately to any crisis affecting U.S. children at scale, or in communities where Save the Children works. It also supports the continued strengthening of Save the Children’s staff capacity and operational systems, the prepositioning of supplies, as well as continued critical relationships with external partners to improve Save the Children’s ability to respond to U.S. disasters and maximize impact for children in times of need.

While we cannot predict when or how many disasters will occur, the specific duration and frequency of disaster response programs varies to match the scope and scale of impact. Save the Children focuses our services in immediate relief through distribution of child-focused goods like diapers, hygiene kits, cribs, and school supplies and developmental toys. We provide emergency grants and supplies to early education and community organizations serving children so they can reopen as quickly as possible and children can return to their normal routine. We help children and caregivers cope, recover and prepare for future disasters through social-emotional and resilience trainings and capacity building. Save the Children prioritizes the most at-risk children and works in partnership with state and local agencies to ensure our interventions are tailored to best meet the needs of communities we work in.  

We target children who experience inequality or discrimination (historically and/or currently) and at-risk children and their families when disaster strikes a community. While in many instances disaster relief efforts are focused in the highest populated most media visible areas, we ensure our efforts also extend into areas that are otherwise forgotten, as these areas are often resource poor before a disaster and they need extra support to recover in the aftermath. Most of our interventions focus on children ages 0-12, their families, caregivers and the services that support their education, development and wellbeing.

In addition to funding key programmatic work, GSK’s employees are always at the heart of our partnership. GSK’s employee workforce supports our partnership through award-winning Orange United fundraising campaigns, as well as by contributing their time and expertise through skill-based volunteer engagements. Employees in 70+ countries have raised millions for Save the Children’s work globally, and 100+ GSK employees have been placed in Save the Children roles, drawing on their professional expertise to provide valuable skilled services.

Thanks to our support, Save the Children was able to act quickly and respond to recent US disasters, including Hurricane Laura, which made landfall in the Gulf Coast in August, and the ongoing wildfires in California and Washington.
