Please help kids in the world's most dangerous places.

<br>Please help kids in the world's most dangerous places.

Today, kids are fleeing war zones in places like Ukraine, facing starvation in parts of Africa and Afghanistan, and growing up in refugee camps without their parents.

These kids are just like the kids in your neighbourhood. Except their homes are being torn apart.

Right now, kids in danger urgently need your help to survive, recover and build a future.

Every $1 you give will provide $6 of life-saving support – food, water, medicine, shelter, protection and more. Your gift of $10 will become $60 now.
