Save the Children is responding to Ivorian refugees streaming into Liberia as result of the conflict in the Ivory Coast. 

Our child protection teams are, "ensuring that children are made safe and brought to a safe place as quickly as possible." Children arrive frightened and fatigued from the long, arduous walk. On a typical day the temperature is around 100 degrees and humid.
