For some, fantasy is the only way to escape reality

Some 250 million children across the world are growing up in the midst of war - many of whom have been forced to flee their homes. These children are confronted daily with the terrible effects of armed conflict. They can’t always handle their experiences alone.

Kadar* was forced to leave his home. Together with his father. His hero. He won’t talk about all he has experienced: The bombings. The attacks. The terror. “All the things I’ve seen. They break my heart”.

Fantasy is often the only way for children like Kadar to escape their reality. War Child supports children with vital protection, education and psychosocial support. So they are not alone and can better cope with their terrible experiences. And build a better future for themselves.
