Refugee children are in crisis

Wars and disasters are causing unimaginable suffering for children

In the conflict and upheaval that forces families to leave their homes, every year hundreds of thousands of children lose their parents to violence or become separated from them on their journey to safety. With no one to care for them, they risk slipping through the cracks.

All children deserve to be safe where they live, learn and play. Please consider a generous gift today to help protect children fleeing alone.

More than 173,800 unaccompanied and separated children fled their homes and sought asylum last year. Your gift today could help:

  • Find and identify unaccompanied and separated children and attempt to reunite them with their families
  • Provide the necessities of life for children who have been left to fend for themselves
  • Rebuild children’s lives through psychosocial support

More than half of the world's refugees are children. Please act now to help them.
