Where we work

War Child works with children affected by violence and armed conflict in sixteen countries around the world - meeting urgent needs wherever we are needed.

Reaching the children who need our help

War Child has and supports programmes and projects in: Bangladesh, Burundi, Chad, Colombia, DR Congo, Germany, Jordan, Lebanon, Netherlands, occupied Palestinian territory, Sri Lanka, South Sudan, Sudan, Sweden, Syria, and Uganda.

Around the world, War Child is committed to provide psychological support, child-protection and quality education. In the Middle East we provide children from both refugee and marginalised host communities with vital education and psychosocial support. In Africa our work is designed to help children cope with the immediate and long-term consequences of conflict and build skills for a better future. In Latin America we promote peace-building efforts and support children to boost their wellbeing and resilience.

We work in collaboration with partner organisations across the world to ensure our work has maximum impact - and reaches the children who need it most.
