No child should be part of war. Ever.

All around the world, children’s lives are being torn apart by violence and fighting. When war breaks out, children lose everything. Supporting War Child means we can act rapidly when conflict begins, and continue to be there long after the cameras have left.

War Child believes that no child should be part of war. Ever. Our dedicated staff are working around the clock in conflict zones all around the world to keep children safe.

But there are thousands of children who still need us and we can’t do it without you. Donate now

About War Child

Children’s lives continue to be torn apart by bombs in Ukraine. They urgently need your help.

At War Child, we are driven by a single goal – ensuring a safe future for every child living through war.

We work to protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children living through conflict and go to the hardest to reach places to support those who are hardest hit. We aim to be there for children who need us most, when they need us most.

We will never give up on children living through conflict.
