Côte d'Ivoire Emergency: One Year On

In any crisis, children are always the most vulnerable. This was evident for children in Côte d’Ivoire
when violence broke out in April 2011 in the aftermath of the presidential conflict. Over 3,000
people were killed and over a million people fled their homes in fear. In a country where children
make up over 50% of the population, the resulting impact of displacement and violence on children
meant Save the Children’s efforts for children were especially critical in the emergency response.
Save the children set up an emergency plan to effectively meet the needs of populations affected
by the crisis and reached over 1,142,350 children.
This one year report presents the work and achievements of Save the Children during the Emergency response in Côte d’Ivoire.
