Why your donation matters
Remember that war started by a child?
Neither do we.
Children don't start wars - but their homes, schools, families and communities are torn apart by conflict.
These are the very things that 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 and consequences of war.
Your support helps to protect children's lives. Thank you.
Case study: donations in action
At just 15, Bena is the head of her family. Her parents are both dead and her three younger sisters rely on her. She relies on getting an education so she can provide for them in the future.
She bears a heavy responsibility, but she doesn't complain. “I am now in charge because I'm the eldest girl. I have to put a lot of effort into my studies so I can support my sisters. As head of family I tell them to follow the right path in life”
The girls live with their uncle's family — but he mistreats them and won't pay for Bena to go to school. We will. With your help, we're paying for the uniform and books that get her into the classroom.
Education is a great weapon to fight many of the harmful traditions that endanger boys and disempower girls. “People here try to say that our grandparents used to steal cattle so the young people should do the same. It's inheritance. I want the raiding to stop. It has killed many”
