Save the Children work flat out in the UK and around the world to make sure children have food, education, healthcare and protection. They fight for the rights of children wherever they are in the world.

Save the Children projects save lives every day, and we work hard to persuade world leaders to make change too.

£2 the sale of each of the new Switch On To The Lampies DVD will go towards the Save the Children protection work with very vulnerable children in Mongolia. They run rehabilitation centres, where disabled children can get medical help or therapy.

Through the Lampies we want children in the UK to help children in Mongolia.
