This unusual time is difficult for us all. But the world's most vulnerable children urgently need our help, now more than ever. They need you to help shield them from the danger of this pandemic. 

Children living in extreme poverty and refugee camps will feel the full force of this deadly disease.

Living in tents and crowded slum housing, without soap and clean water, how can they protect themselves? Many children are already malnourished, and families lack access to even the most basic healthcare. Refugees have escaped unimaginable dangers, and now can't hide from this invisible threat.

We need to reach more families, before it's too late.

Only a huge collective effort will work, and we can all play our part.

By joining us to give monthly you can help us do so much more. As this crisis unfolds over the coming weeks and months, you can help us scale up our response, getting life-saving care and protection to the children who need it most. Going forward you'll help vulnerable children around the world, wherever the need is greatest.

Together we can protect the world's most vulnerable children from coronavirus.


Families living in Syrian refugee camps have already escaped from unimaginable dangers, and now are facing a new danger that they can't run from. Many are afraid to leave their tent. "Seven years in Lebanon, and this is by far the toughest phase" mum of five Fatima said. "I still recall the bombing in Syria, and how scary it was, but you can hear the explosion and run away from it. This virus is unseen and unheard - it is like an invisible weapon."
