War Child

War Child are driven by a single goal – ensuring a safe future for every child affected by war.

They work in some of the hardest to reach places to support those who are hardest hit. They aim to reach children as quickly as possible when conflict breaks out and stay long after the cameras have gone to support them through their recovery. They work with local communities and governments to help protect and educate children, and support them to heal and learn, for a safer, brighter future.

Because one child caught up in conflict, is one child too many.

War Child understand children’s needs, respect and stand up for their rights, and put them at the centre of everything we do. They boldly campaign on the root causes of conflict and help to amplify children’s voices, so that they can advocate for change on the issues that matter to them. 

Together with their partners, they deliver vital work in 16 countries across Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America.

Every day, their local teams are in communities and refugee camps creating safe spaces for children to play, learn and access psychological support. They also specialise in responding rapidly to emergency crisis situations as-they-happen, to offer immediate and critical aid to keep children safe and help them through their trauma.  

War Child’s commitment is to never give up on children affected by conflict.

You can help War Child continue to protect children when war breaks out and support communities in the long term. For more information, visit their website
