About War Child UK
War Child is an award winning international charity which works with local partner organisations to support children acutely affected by conflict. War hits children the hardest. This is fundamentally wrong and outrages us. War Child believes that something can be done about this. War Child helps provide protection for children who are acutely marginalised by the effects of conflict in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic. As well as being known for working in the world's most dangerous war zones, War Child is famous for its association with the music industry - having broken records and boasting award winning albums.
