Children in Emergencies

Hope for children living in dangerous places

In a moment, Owa changed from boy to soldier

Fighting as a young boy in a violent conflict, Owa was forced to witness and do things that no child should. Despite his painful beginning, Owa is beginning his journey to recovery and hope.

In places where danger is rife; without choice or warning, life can change in a moment. We can help people through their distress when we stand together.

What We are Doing

  • Food and clean water
  • Child-Friendly Spaces for children to learn and play
