What War Child believe is simple; no child should suffer the consequences of conflict. We are the only international charity that focuses its work solely on children suffering the brutal effects of conflict. Children are too often hit hardest by conflict. They are targeted, beaten, raped and tortured; their homes, families and schools are destroyed – everything a child needs to build a better future for themselves is lost. Our unique, challenging work saves the lives of the most vulnerable children offering them a lifeline and hope for the future. Fundraising will enable us to continue our vital work; protecting children, helping them to gain an education and enabling children and their families to create their own opportunities for the years ahead. Your donation will protect childhoods in the middle of a chaotic and dangerous situation.
