Who We Are

Our mission is to protect, educate, and stand up for the rights of children caught up in conflict.

Take a look at our Impact Report 2017-2018 to see how we’re working towards our mission.

When a conflict breaks out, lives are turned upside down. Homes are destroyed. People are injured and killed. Children are traumatized. For those who survive, the recovery process can only begin when they feel safe. That’s where we come in.

We exist to create a world where no child’s life is torn apart by war. Until that day comes, we’re fiercely working to help children heal by providing protection, education, and skills to give them a chance at life again. With our sister organization War Child UK, we help instill hope with understanding, respect, and love in some of the world’s most distressed areas like Iraq, the Central African Republic, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

I’m feeling happier and safer than before. My sister will not die. There is enough [food] for the month and my mum is smiling again.
