Millions of children are caught up in terrifying conflicts they've played no part in.

From Ukraine to Yemen, vulnerable children are living through terrifying conflicts, caught up in wars they’ve played no part in. Many are torn from home, stranded at borders, without help, food or water and not knowing when they'll next reach a safe place to call home.

Children in Yemen, like those in Ukraine, are facing unimaginable futures. They may be killed or injured, lose family members and homes and witness things no child should. Families are having to make desperate, agonising choices just to survive.

Our teams are already working in places like Ukraine and Yemen to understand the impact on children and get them life-saving aid and psychological care, fast. But we can’t reach children in conflict zones without you. Our Emergency Fund allows us to put donations to work, exactly where they’re needed, as quickly as possible. Please donate.
