What does War Child do?

A safe future for every child affected by war.

At War Child we are driven by a single goal – ensuring a safe future for every child affected by war. 


Using our 30 years of experience and proven methodologies, we aim to reach children as quickly as possible when conflict breaks out and stay long after the cameras have gone to support them through their recovery. We work with local communities and governments to help protect and educate children, and support them to heal and learn, for a safer, brighter future. 


Because one child caught up in conflict, is one child too many. 


At War Child, we understand children’s needs, respect and stand up for their rights, and put them at the centre of everything we do. We speak out to ensure international humanitarian law is upheld, boldly campaign on the root causes of conflict and help to amplify children’s voices, so that they can advocate for change on the issues that matter to them. 


Together with our partners, we deliver our vital work in 14 countries across Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. 


Every day, our local teams are in communities and refugee camps creating safe spaces for children to play, learn and access psychological support. We also specialise in responding rapidly to emergency crisis situations as-they-happen, to deliver immediate and critical aid impartially to keep children safe and help them through their trauma. 


At War Child, we will never give up on children affected by conflict.

All around the world, children’s lives are being torn apart by violence and fighting. When war breaks out, children lose everything. Supporting War Child means we can act rapidly when conflict begins, and continue to be there long after the cameras have left.
