War Child is an international charity that works with children in some of the world’s most dangerous war zones – Iraq, Afghanistan, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
They provide protection for children who, as a result of war, live with insecurity, poverty and social exclusion. This includes street children, children in prison and children recruited or abducted by rebel groups. They work with these children and their communities to protect them from violence, abuse and exploitation.
By campaigning for policy changes they help many more children than they could possibly hope to work with themselves.
War Child and The Future Tense look forward to a world in which the lives of children are no longer torn apart by war.
