Rescue a Childhood

Give hope to a child

who has none.

No mother would want this for her children

Imagine carrying your children away from their burning village.

Their father's been killed and now - as you reach safety- you must leave them too.

Abdul (8) and Kamal (6) last saw their mum at the Myanmar - Bangladesh boarder. She didn't have the money to cross with them.

Watch Abdul
and Kamal's


Abdul, 8, does all he can to look after his little brother Kamal, 6.

They walked for five exhausting days to reach a hot, dirty refugee camp. Now their home, toys, family and friends are far away memories.

Each day Abdul bears the weight of responsibility, their childhoods slip further away.

For children like Abdul and Kamal, every day lost to responsibility, work, fear or abuse is another day of childhood they'll never get back

Together, we can help them

£10 a month gives them a chance to be children again

Child-friendly spaces

The traumas some children go through can destroy their childhoods. Your donations could go towards a child-friendly space – a safe place to recover and play, where they can just be children again.

Food, water, shelter

You can help save and protect children who are struggling to survive. They might be weak with hunger, at risk from disease or homeless after fleeing terrible violence. You can provide urgently needed food, water and shelter.

An education and hope

It’s hard to think about the future when you’re fighting for survival. Your support will help to provide safe environments where children can continue their learning, and start to fulfil their potential.

Watch Sara's


“Before the war, nothing worried me.”

When 14-year-old Sara fled Syria with her family, she only took two things with her – a watch, and her photo album. Both remind her of her daddy, who she adored. As violence escalated in Damascus, he was kidnapped and then brutally killed.

Sara has seen things no one ever should. She’d give anything to have her daddy back. We can’t do that for her – but we can start to rescue her childhood.
