Urgent appeal

Help displaced children survive, recover and build brighter futures.

Children can lose everything when disaster strikes.

Children’s lives can change in an instant when they’re forced from home by conflict, persecution or natural disasters.

Imagine raising your children in a war zone. Or in a place where unpredictable weather can kill. You’d do anything to keep your family safe from harm. But for many families in the world’s most dangerous places that’s not always possible.

Leaving everything behind, children like 13-year-old Yar – whose home in South Sudan was destroyed by floods – must flee to safety. Hungry, thirsty and exposed to the elements, displaced children urgently need your help to survive.

Please help children like Yar survive disaster and build a brighter future by giving what you can today.
