War Child is a family of independent humanitarians, working across the world to help children affected by the plight of war. They protect children living in the world's most dangerous war zones such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Uganda and D.R. Congo, working to provide life-changing support to the most vulnerable children whose families, communities and schools have been torn apart by war. War Child is directly improving the lives of tens of thousands of children around the world and continues to work towards improving the lives of millions more. They rely on donations to make a vital difference to a child’s life by persuading the decision-makers, in war torn countries, to meet their responsibilities to keep every child safe. War Child is making a real difference by offering opportunity and change to those whose voices are otherwise unheard.

War Child believes that all children have a right to grow up in a protective milieu which is free from abuse, neglect and exploitation.
