Your Donation




War Child UK is the only specialist charity for children affected by conflict. For more than two decades we've been driven by a single goal - for no child's life to be torn apart by war.

Your support means we can provide life-saving aid when conflict breaks out, and stay to support children through their recovery - keeping them safe, helping them learn and cope with their experiences, and equipping them with skills for the future.

You can help us be there for children who need us most, when they need us most.


We're here to help. If you have any questions about the ways you can give, you can contact us by phoning us on +44 (0)20 7112 2555 or by sending an email to [email protected].

If you'd like to donate by post, you can make a cheque payable to War Child and send it to: War Child UK, Dunn’s Hat Factory (4th Floor), 106-110 Kentish Town Road, London, NW1 9PX.

Our history

War Child was founded in 1993 by film-makers David Wilson and Bill Leeson, who on assignment in the former-Yugoslavia were horrified by the violence and ethnic cleansing they witnessed.
