War Child Sweden
Children in war or on the run often have nowhere to go. They don’t have a place where they can play, learn and socialize with others. Children of different ages come to War Childs Safe Spaces to process the trauma, receive psychosocial support and start making social contacts again. Here, children can, often after long periods of horrible experiences, relax and practice the interaction with others. They become happier, calmer and receptive to learning new things. WHAT WE DO: A Safe Space can be established in a former school, in a refugee camp, in an abandoned home or in another place that is considered suitable and sufficiently safe. Our staff prepares and equips the room for the children, so that they will feel welcome and safe. Furniture, toys, painting materials and other things that may be needed will be in place to be used in our workshops, trainings and projects. For many children, it is the first time after months of escape that they enter a room where they can relax and play. And often it is also the first time in several months that parents see their children play again. It's very emotional. Our trained staff attaches great importance to group games, such as songs and rhymes. In this way, the children practice being with others again. Too often they have experienced isolation or shut themselves in while fleeing. THIS IS WHAT YOUR MONEY ACHIEVES: It costs SEK 150,000 to set up and equip a Safe Space. A Safe Space can be used by up to 250 children per week, with adults included, the figure rises to approx. 500 per week. In other words, a single Safe Space is very useful. War Child works as far as possible with local staff, who are well acquainted with what the children's reality looks like. Help War Child take the war out of the children. Give your contribution now!

40 SEK changes the future for a child in Afghanistan
In Afghanistan, one of Asia's poorest countries, up to 40% of children are not allowed to go to school. As many as six million children work to support their families. Here, War Child is in place so that more children will have the opportunity for education. But we need your help to succeed. What you money will do: SEK 100 is enough to buy a school kit for two children. SEK 700 is enough to equip a classroom in a school. SEK 20,000 means that 175 working street children have the opportunity to participate in an educational program with intensive education. Afghanistan has been plagued by war and violent conflict for decades. The situation is very worrying and violence is constantly present. Various provincial warlords and Taliban forces control large parts of the country and the central power is extremely marginalized. 22 million people live in poverty, the country's economy is in ruins and the political situation is extremely strained. Almost half of the country's population is under 15 years of age. Insecurity is evident everywhere, especially for children and young people. As a result of the conflicts, tens of thousands of families have split up and each person's life is affected by the chaos. Growing up in Afghanistan means being surrounded by war and conflict. The situation is worst for the girls who are often denied education due to religious reasons. Families often have to prioritize early education so that the children can instead work and contribute to the livelihood. WHAT WE DO: In Afghanistan, we work both directly with the vulnerable children and through local partners, all to reach as many children as possible. In one of our projects in Afghanistan, we work with care and education for young children through a program, Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD), which focuses on supporting girls and boys from 4 years and up. To date, 300 children have received education and psychosocial support, in order to increase their learning ability and cognitive skills. 168 street children living in extreme poverty have been given the opportunity to go to school. We have also trained 10 volunteers in ECCD's curriculum. But many, many more people need support. Our goal is to support a total of 600 children and young people through intensive education and our ECCD program so that they are better equipped to create a brighter future. Since 2016, War Child has also focused on educating adults, including children's parents, to better understand what children are forced to go through and provide them with the necessary tools to better protect their children. Help War Child take the war out of the children. Give your contribution now! If this project does not reach its full financial target within the allotted time, I agree that my contribution will be used for War Child's other project to support children in war.

250 kronor förser en hel familj med mat under en månad i Jemen
Jemens barn betalar ett dödligt pris för de vuxnas krig. Sedan konflikten inleddes har över 3 miljoner människor tvingats fly sina hem. 80 % av de som lever i störst nöd är barn. Inbördeskriget i Jemen fortsätter att eskalera och lämnar miljontals barn i behov av humanitär hjälp. Under de senaste två och ett halvt åren har konflikten i Jemen växt. Från att ha varit en intern konflikt mellan regeringsstyrkor och rebellgruppen Houthi har kriget växt till större konflikter mellan konkurrerande regionala styrkor. Befolkningen i Jemen utsätts för terroristattacker och flygattacker. Det pågående kriget har lett till att omkring 22 miljoner (80% av befolkningen) är i behov av akut humanitär hjälp. Miljontals människor befinner sig i en utsatt situation, inte bara på grund av striderna utan även på grund av bristen på mat och sjukvård. Barnen är dom som drabbats hårdast av konflikten. I och med att samhället kollapsar saknar omkring två miljoner barn tillgång till utbildning. Utbrott av kolera och andra sjukdomar förvärrar läget ytterligare. VAD VI GÖR: War Child finns på plats och jobbar med att skydda barn och unga och ger även ut mat till utsatta familjer. War Child har även tagit del i initiativet Yemen Joint Response som startats av Dutch Relief Alliance. Sex organisationer jobbar tillsammans för att bistå med akut humanitärt stöd där det behövs som mest. Hjälp oss att stötta barn och unga i Jemen genom att ge ett bidrag till insamlingen. DET HÄR GÖR DINA PENGAR: 250 kronor räcker till matvoucher som täcker en hel familjs matbehov en månad. Hjälp War Child att ta kriget ur barnen. Ge ditt bidrag nu! Om detta projekt inte når sitt fulla ekonomiska mål på utsatt tid samtycker jag till att mitt bidrag används för War Childs andra projekt med att stötta barn i krig.
