People’s Postcode Lottery is a unique partner: they realise the value of flexible funding and provide long-term support.
Rewards given by players are 'unrestricted', meaning they don't have to support a pre-defined project.
This is rare. But it's vital for us.
It enables us to operate as an effective charity. We can respond immediately to emergency situations. We can deliver sustainable, quality programmes. And we can invest in our growth, allowing us reach more and more children affected by conflict.
... Tens of thousands more children are being protected when they need it most.
7.8 million children are in urgent need of support following two decades of conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
Players have been funding War Child’s helpline since 2014, a lifeline for thousands of vulnerable children, like Agnes, who have been separated from their families, and are at risk of trafficking and recruitment into armed groups.
Thanks to Players’ long-term commitment to our work, the helpline has grown from strength to strength and is now operating across four areas in DRC.
This means that tens of thousands more children are being protected when they need it most.
With Players' support, through the child helpline we’re able to reach some of the most remote territories of North DRC, where armed groups remain particularly active and children are at risk of exploitation.
