Be There For Children Living Through Crisis

The nightmare unfolding in Gaza has been catastrophic for children. The constant bombardment has brought scenes of utter devastation, where homes, schools, and critical infrastructure have been destroyed, leaving thousands of children dead or injured.

The unfolding crisis in Gaza is just one of many emergencies affecting children around the world in 2024. Children in Ukraine, Yemen and Sudan are facing another year filled with war, terror and trauma, whilst families in Somalia, Chad and Ethiopia struggle to survive amidst conflict and climate induced natural disasters.

The world has never been more cruel and harsh for children. Millions urgently need help and life-saving humanitarian aid.

Please donate now to save lives.
