Child Refugee Crisis Appeal: donate now
A scene from our new film, Still the Most Shocking Second a Day, which imagines a British child refugee’s journey in search of safety.
Europe is facing its worst refugee crisis in decades.
More than a million people have now made the perilous trip across the Mediterranean to Europe in search of safety – many of them children.
For those who survive the journey, their terrifying ordeal is not over.
Bundled into trucks or walking many miles, children are afraid and exhausted, and the physical impact of travelling is clear.
Children have been stuck in limbo for months. Food and water are often in short supply. Many children are sleeping in damp tents or out in the open.
How your donation will help children
We work along the whole route that child refugees take into Europe, as well as in the countries they are fleeing.
We distribute food, water, blankets and tents to refugee families who have lost everything. And we ensure children get vital medical care.
Our teams work to reunite lone children with their families and keep them safe from trafficking and exploitation.
We provide emotional support, set up safe spaces where children can play, and help them get back to education.
