War Child UK is the only specialist charity for children affected by conflict. We aim to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out and we stay to support them through their recovery.

About us

War Child is striving for a world where children’s lives are no longer torn apart by war. We protect, educate, and stand up for the rights of children caught up in conflict. ​ ​ We raise vital funds to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out and stay to support them after the conflicts ends. Our work helps to keep children safe, provide an education, and equip them with life skills for the future.​ ​ We work in 15 countries across Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. ​ ​ We understand children’s needs, respect their rights, and support young people to change systems and practices that affect them – campaigning on the root causes of conflict and demanding that children are at the centre of humanitarian response. ​
