From Yemen to Afghanistan, South Sudan to Somalia, war is throwing entire regions of the world into turmoil. Children are caught in the middle, the most vulnerable and blameless casualties. That is why we are launching our Crisis Response Fund, a new opportunity for you to have a real impact in a world where it is increasingly unsafe to be a child.

War is chaotic and unpredictable. It can flare up without notice, turn communities into battlefields and drive families from their homes within hours. It is at this critical moment when War Child’s support is needed more than ever. To protect children caught up in sudden violence, we must respond with flexibility and speed.

At the outbreak of war, we can’t watch and wait for the media, governments or international bureaucracies to catch up while thousands of children are at their most vulnerable and unprotected.

This is why we are asking you to become a founding donor in our new Crisis Response Fund.



Your donation to the Crisis Response Fund will allow us to take action immediately and  provide fast-acting and critical support to children when war breaks out. With your support, War Child will be able to respond to the world’s most pressing emergencies and crises, including:

  • Starting up programming in Yemen, where an estimated 80% of civilians are in need of some form of humanitarian assistance and civilians are being routinely targeted by warring factions.
  • Support to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh where 400,000 children are living in disastrous conditions after being brutally forced to flee their homes by their own government in Myanmar.
  • Support for Syrian families displaced by a brutal conflict and now facing a struggle to survive and rebuild in refugees camps and cities and villages decimated by fighting.


War Child is partnering with GoFundMe to launch the Crisis Response Fund and we are offering you the chance to be one of the first to get on board.

Join our efforts and become a founding donor today.  You will receive regular updates on how your contribution is protecting and supporting children trapped in some of the most dangerous places in the world, as well as ideas for how to help us keep the Fund growing. And once you’ve donated, don’t forget to share this important appeal with your friends and family.
