Provide essentials of life

You can transform vulnerable children's lives today

Make a lasting difference

Across the world, millions of children don't have access to clean water, food, protection, healthcare and education.

We're on the ground changing that - but we can't do it without you.

We urgently need you to give what you can to provide essentials for vulnerable children.

What you can provide

From just £8 a month, you can make a huge difference to a child.

How your money is spent

Your donations will bring hope to millions of vulnerable children in some of the world's most dangerous places.

When you give to Essentials, your donation is used where it's needed most. We work together with communities to equip them with everything they need – nutritious food, clean drinking water, protection, education and health care – to provide for their children and give them a happy, healthy childhood.

Our work is community and child-led - so you know your money is spent on doing the right thing at the right time.

You’ll get updates 2-4 times a year about the children and communities you’re helping, so you can see the lasting difference you’re making in children’s lives.

Even if we don't realise we are making an impact, we are! We need to change the lives of these beautiful children.

Give essentials. Like clean water.
