Save A Child founder and executive director Sally Becker has been working in areas of conflict since 1993, when she became known as ‘The Angel of Mostar’ while rescuing wounded children and their families from besieged hospitals in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Amidst the carnage and the chaos, she managed to negotiate ceaseﬁres in areas where others had failed and is credited with saving hundreds of lives.
Sally has helped save the lives of children in some of the worlds worst conflict zones including Kosovo, Chechnya, Syria and Northern Iraq. She recently launched an app based paediatric telemedicine programme to help treat sick and injured children in besieged or remote areas across the globe.
Since the war started in Ukraine this year she evacuated over 200 women and children from the region, including many orphans.
