There are currently some 250 million children living in countries affected by violence and armed conflict, according to UN figures. The fundamental rights of children to be protected, educated and live their lives free from fear and trauma are repeatedly violated during times of war and violence.
War Child works to ensure that these children can realise their rights and build a better future - both for themselves and their communities. Our programmes combine elements including psychosocial support, education and protection and are designed to improve the well-being of conflict-affected children.
We are present in fourteen countries across the world. An in-depth description of our various regional programmes follows.
