War Child UK

Aim of the organisation

War Child was founded in 1993 in response to the war in the Balkans. Our belief remains the same today as it was then—no child should have their life destroyed by war.

Organisation activities

We aim to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out, and stay on to support them—long after the TV cameras have gone home. We help keep them safe, give them an education, and equip them with skills for the future. We understand children’s needs, respect their rights, and put them at the centre of everything we do. Whether it's helping Syrian children access education, rehabilitating ex-child soldiers in the Central African Republic or seeking justice for young people detained in Afghanistan. We also work with children and young people to change systems and practices that affect them. We campaign on the root causes of conflict, and we demand that children are at the centre of all humanitarian responses.
