Three ways you can help
Bartend against bombs
From cocktail competitions to the humble tip jar, Ben and Calum have their eyes set on raising £10,000 for children affected by conflict.
An 'I do' with a difference
Inés and Jon shared their special day with us by asking their guests to make a gift to War Child instead.
Three reasons to support War Child
1. We arrive fast, and we stay longer
We’re known for our rapid response – we always want to reach children quickly when war breaks out, because early help can be crucial. We don’t wait for the media focus to get to a conflict zone – and we don’t quit when the spotlight moves away. We provide support before others arrive, and we stick around to build long-term recovery. We fill crucial gaps in humanitarian aid and funding.
2. We listen to children, and we speak up for their rights
We don’t treat children as simply helpless victims of conflict. Protecting them from danger is the first step, but we also need to hear their voices, and identify the best options for them in each situation. We use our expertise and experience to help children have a better future, particularly by maintaining their education and strengthening community support. We need your help to do more of that.
3. We are trusted specialists, and we change lives
We’re the only charity dedicated to protecting children in war. We’re known for our values and our effective working practices, and we have a team of committed experts. We don’t do it all alone of course – part of our job is mobilising others, whether it’s NGOs, local communities or governments, to improve outcomes for young people. Your support is vital so we can keep developing, and help more children.
