About War Child

Children’s lives continue to be torn apart by bombs in Gaza. They urgently need your help. Regular donations mean we can act rapidly when war breaks out, as well as continuing to be there long after the cameras have left.

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.
