With over 70 years of experience, our focus is on helping the most vulnerable children overcome poverty and experience fullness of life. We help children of all backgrounds, even in the most dangerous places, inspired by our Christian faith. 

Come join our 34,000+ staff working in nearly 100 countries and share the joy of transforming vulnerable children’s life stories! 

The escalation of conflict in Ukraine has forced more than 5 million people - mostly women and children - to flee to neighbouring countries. With the escalating crisis, the needs are growing by the hour. More than half of Ukraine's children have either fled for safety within the country or are living as refugees. 

Since the conflict started, our teams have been on the ground assessing and responding to the urgent needs of those searching for safety.
