Stop the war on children!

Nearly every fifth child in the world is affected by a war or conflict. Save the Children is on the ground, doing whatever it takes to reach every last child in need. Our demand: Stop the war on children!

Johanna F. from Save the ChildrenWrite a message

420 million children worldwide are living in conflict areas – that’s every fifth child in the world. Millions of them face violence, abuse and poverty, they are dropping out of school and are not getting the support they need in order to grow up healthy and prosperous.
 
 Our fight for children’s rights
 
100 years ago, the founder of Save the Children, Eglantyne Jebb, stepped up for children in conflict, stating: "Every war is a war against children." A century later, the wars still haven’t stopped – this is why we are using our anniversary to raise awareness for children trapped in conflict. Save the Children needs your help to respond quickly and efficiently when children are most at risk. In over 120 countries around the world, we do whatever it takes to reach every last child in need with the necessary support.

It is only thanks to your donations that we can provide children with life-saving medical care, shelter, food and water. In our child-friendly-spaces, children can reclaim their childhood and recover from traumatic experiences, play, learn and be safe.

You can also help children trapped in conflict with your voice: Become a part of our movement, sign our current petition and help us bring children's rights to the political agenda. Thank you!
