FOR A CHILD FACING THE BRUTAL IMPACT OF WAR, TIME STOPS.
FOR WAR CHILD, IT’S TIME TO BEGIN.
From Yemen to Afghanistan, South Sudan to Somalia, war is throwing entire regions of the world into turmoil. Children are caught in the middle, the most vulnerable and blameless casualties. That is why we launched our Crisis Response Fund, an opportunity for you to have a real impact in a world where it is increasingly unsafe to be a child.
War is chaotic and unpredictable. It can flare up without notice, turn communities into battlefields and drive families from their homes within hours. It is at this critical moment when War Child’s support is needed more than ever. To protect children caught up in sudden violence, we must respond with flexibility and speed.
At the outbreak of war, we can’t watch and wait for the media, governments or international bureaucracies to catch up while thousands of children are at their most vulnerable and unprotected.
Your donation to the Crisis Response Fund will allow us to take action immediately and provide fast-acting, critical support to children when war breaks out. With your support, War Child will be able to respond faster than ever to the world’s most pressing emergencies and crises, including:
- Support children affected by the war in Yemen, where an estimated 80% of civilians are in need of some form of humanitarian assistance and civilians are being routinely targeted by warring factions.
- Support to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh where 400,000 children are living in disastrous conditions after being brutally forced to flee their homes by their own government in Myanmar.
- Support for Syrian families displaced by a brutal conflict and now facing a struggle to survive and rebuild in refugees camps and cities and villages decimated by fighting.
Once you’ve donated, don’t forget to share this important appeal with your friends and family!
