It’s the support of people like you that has made everything we’ve accomplished over the past 100 years possible. Here's what your fundraising can achieve.

we need your help

Children are more at risk of conflict now than at any time in the past 20 years. Millions more are not getting the vaccinations they need to grow up healthy, or the care they need when they’re sick.

They’re being denied an education, and the chance to build a future better than their past.

Our centenary is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to change to all this – to make sure every child can survive, learn and be protected.

That’s why, during 2019, we’ll be calling on you
