  • Mission statement

    War Child is a small international charity that protects children from the brutal effects of war and its consequences. We currently work in Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic, Iraq, Uganda and most recently Lebanon.

    We 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 in prison
    • Girls at risk of rape or violence

    We may be a small charity but we have got big ambitions. Our staff are living and working in some of the world’s most dangerous war zones helping thousands of kids to rebuild their lives.
