There are more children in need of humanitarian assistance now than at any other time since the Second World War. The new year brought no respite for children in need, in fact it brought only more conflict, hunger and despair.

From war and displacement to malnutrition and disease, children are battling to survive.

We need your support to reach the most vulnerable children around the globe. A gift from you can save a child from malnutrition, protect a child from disease and help them survive.

Your kindness can save lives.

Give Warmth to Children Living Through War

Attacks on energy infrastructure have left most families in Ukraine struggling to stay warm this winter.

Families who have been forced to flee their homes are living in temporary shelters with no electricity, heating or fuel. Exposed to conditions like this, children can quickly fall ill with serious respiratory illnesses like pneumonia.

A donation today, could provide a family in Ukraine with warm winter clothes, blankets and fuel. You have already helped deliver 150 tonnes of aid to Ukraine, but we must reach more children.

The children of Ukraine need your help now. Please donate what you can to help save a child’s life.

How Your Donations Save Lives

Against all odds, in 2022 alone, you and the rest of our community of generous donors helped to:

  • Vaccinate 3.8 million children against measles.
  • Give 25.9 million people access to safe drinking water.
  • Treat 2.6 million children for severe acute malnutrition.

But our work’s not done yet.

Unfortunately, millions more children are living in emergency situations. And now with the worsening effects of climate change, your help has never been more important.
