Help children who've been forced to leave everything behind.

Children in Ukraine have had to leave their homes, with no end to the conflict in sight. Can you imagine running from your home, surrounded by the stench of smoke and ear-splitting explosions? This was the reality for millions of children forced to flee within Ukraine and to neighbouring countries since the crisis began. And as the fighting worsens, even more families are being forced to leave everything behind.

Refugee children and families need food, essentials, protection against trafficking, support to recover from trauma and more. Every $1 you give to help kids in danger will provide $6 of urgent support thanks to our partnerships with other organisations. These kids need your help.

Give monthly to Childhood Rescue to protect children in dangerous places.

A monthly gift of $20, will provide $120 worth of life-changing support to children whose lives are on the line, thanks to our partnerships with other organisations.

Devastating effects that will last a lifetime

Ukrainian children have lost their homes, schools, and everything that anchored them in life. They need support to help them process what they’ve been through. Otherwise, millions will suffer life-long mental health issues.

Adding to their trauma, many refugee children are out of school. They’re missing precious opportunities to learn, play, and just be kids.

"Going back to school gives children a sense of normality, but millions of boys and girls in Ukraine will miss the new school year, and it will be incredibly difficult to regain the time and opportunity to learn” Jennifer Neelsen, World Vision Ukraine Crisis Response Director.

We ensure all resources entrusted to us are used effectively to bring maximum impact.
