In 2019, the UK had support relationships in at least eight countries where grave violations against children were verified by the UN. In this new report, War Child states that building the capacity of partner military forces, without appropriate efforts to ensure that the capacity is used in accordance with international law and best practice, places more children at risk.
Thanks to our amazing supporters and partners, we reached a total of 171,992 children, young people and adults through our work in 2020.
