Changing children’s lives through locally-led action

We’re a global alliance of locally-grown organisations, working with children and families in our communities for a better today and a better tomorrow.

Urgent aid needed! 

Middle East appeal live now.

Children have been killed, maimed and separated from their families as a result of the conflict in the Middle East. The situation is rapidly deteriorating, and urgent aid is needed more than ever.

We are on the ground in Lebanon and are responding already. Our member Naba’a, an independent, non-political local charity, has been supporting internally displaced families for many years and has set up displacement camps looking after thousands of women and children who are moving away from border areas affected by the current conflict. 50% of those being supported are children.

This number is increasing every day…we desperately need food supplies, baby food, nappies, sleeping materials and hygiene products to help these families. The situation is urgent and we need your support.
