Children in the world's most dangerous places urgently need your help.


Kids fleeing Ukraine, facing starvation in parts of Africa, growing up in war zones, and placed in refugee camps, are just like the kids in your community. Except their homes have been torn apart. They face unimaginable dangers like starvation, trafficking and child marriage.

Join Childhood Rescue now to provide life-saving food, water, medicine, shelter, protection and more. You'll help kids recover from trauma. You'll help the adults around them to keep them healthy and safe. You'll help children who've lost everything to build a future. Every $1 you give to help kids in danger will provide $6 of urgent support.

“We are anxious for our future and our livelihoods.”

Right now, the rising cost of food is pushing communities to the edge of starvation. For some children, it means not eating at all.

"There are some people here who literally have nothing. They sleep on empty stomachs" Mike says.

You can help a child to do so much more than survive. You can help them break the cycle of poverty and rewrite their future. Join Childhood Rescue now
