In all conflicts children are more likely to become victims of war than adults. Children don’t start wars but their homes, schools, families and communities are torn apart by war. These are the very things children rely on for protection and the chance to build a life free from poverty. War Child protect children from the brutal effects of war and its consequences; making a measurable and sustainable difference to children’s lives. War Child currently works in Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq and Uganda. We’re on the ground – supporting the most vulnerable children that are too often forgotten in the aftermath of conflict. These include former child soldiers, children living on the streets, children put in prison and girls at risk of rape or violence.
Since partnering with Giveacar in 2011, War Child has received a fantastic £5,825.46 through the scheme. Givecar is a great example of how simple ideas can be incredibly successful and make a huge difference! The money donated to War Child through Giveacar helps us to support children in the world’s most dangerous war zones through our education, protection and livelihood programmes and we are so grateful for Giveacar’s support.
