What we do
War Child has been actively responding to the Syrian crisis since 2012. Our child protection, education and psychosocial support interventions combine to help children cope with over a decade of war.
These programmes - delivered through our network of ‘Safe Spaces’ - allow children to process their experiences and plan for a better future.
In the face of humanitarian access challenges, War Child and its network of local partners employ a flexible approach, seeking to reach children wherever they are. We focus our activities on children who have been forced to leave their homes and drop out of school as a result of the conflict, as well as the communities that host them.
