Why run for War Child?

We're  the only specialist charity for children affected by conflict. For more than two decades we've been driven by a single goal - ensuring a safe future for every child living through war.   

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