In conflict-affected areas children and young people are the most vulnerable to hunger, trauma, and disruption.
War can be particularly devastating for children and young people, who often find themselves separated from their families and without essentials like food, water or money. The psychological impact of conflict can be devastating for a child, and the lack of opportunities for growth and development often last a lifetime.
When conflicts break out, we intervene quickly and work with young people, families and communities to provide immediate assistance and to protect children who are at increased risk of exploitation. This can include providing families with emergency cash relief, food, water and other basic necessities to address their immediate needs.
We provide long-term solutions to mitigate the impact of chronic conflict to help young people, families and communities remain resilient for the future. Whether it's helping schools set up peace gardens, equipping young people with the skills to find apprenticeships or employment, or supporting parents and caregivers to start their own business.
