About War Child
Children don’t start wars. But their homes, schools, families and communities are torn apart by war. These are the very things children rely on for protection and the chance to build a life free from poverty. War Child is a small international charity that protects children from the brutal effects of war and its consequences. They are currently work in Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq and Uganda.
War Child are on the ground - supporting the most vulnerable children that are too often forgotten in the aftermath of conflict. These include:
- Former child soldiers
- Children living on the streets
- Children put it prison
- Girls at risk of rape or violence
War Child may be a small charity but they’ve got big ambitions. Their staff are living and working in some of the world’s most dangerous war zones helping thousands of kids rebuild their lives.
