NUMBER OF CHILDREN LIVING IN DEADLIEST CONFLICT COUNTRIES JUMPS NEARLY 10% IN ONE YEAR.

Children don’t cause or start wars, yet there’s no denying they’re the biggest and most vulnerable victims in any conflict. World leaders must protect children.

Save the Children

Around the world, too many children still start life at a disadvantage simply because of who they are and where they are from.

We are gravely concerned for children around the world caught in the middle of armed conflict in countries such as Afghanistan and Ukraine.

The combined impact of conflict, climate change, COVID-19, and the rising costs of food and fuel has left close to one million people facing famine conditions across five countries.

Children's rights to survival, protection and education is under immediate threat. We can do something about it. Help us protect children to ensure they not only survive but thrive.
