This Christmas, will you help a child who has lost everything?
As soon as we heard the gunshots, we just ran. That was how I ended up with my aunt. I do not know what happened to the rest of my siblings and my parents.
- Blessing, 12, living in Bidi Bidi, Uganda’s largest refugee settlement.
Blessing’s experience is typical of the millions of refugee children facing a Christmas away from home.
We’re already working with refugees in countries including South Sudan, Bangladesh and Syria, providing food aid, shelter and long-term support. But we urgently need your help to scale up our work with vulnerable children around the world.
- £25 could provide food assistance to a child in desperate need
- £50 could buy an emergency baby kit for a family fleeing violence
- £75 could give 2 unaccompanied children the essentials they need when arriving in a refugee camp, including mosquito nets, blankets, sleeping mats, cooking pots and clean clothes
Together, we can show real hope to the world’s most vulnerable children, and show refugees like Blessing that they are not forgotten.
