All money raised by ON/OFF and your pledges will support War Child and help respond to conflicts like those currently in Iraq, Syria and Gaza that are bringing unimaginable horrors to innocent children. With your support War Child can save lives, take children away from war, and bring emergency care, education and hope back into their young lives.
