Stop the War on Children Pledge

Around the world, war is tearing children’s lives apart. From Syria to Yemen to Ukraine, more than one in six children globally live in a warzone.

The recent earthquakes that struck both Türkiye and Syria killed over 51,000 people and made things even worse for children. After years of conflict and terror, children there are now facing new devastation and destruction.

We demand that children caught up in war are given three things: safety, justice and the practical help they need to stay safe and recover.  Will you help us stop the war on children? Sign our pledge:

  • World leaders must always uphold international law to protect children in conflict.

  • Those responsible war crimes against children must be held to account

  • Children in warzones must be given practical support on the ground to protect and care for them, and to help them recover.

Lives and futures depend on the international community acting now: they depend on us.

Will you stand up for the millions of children in danger? By demanding change from governments, and by supporting Save the Children’s recovery programs helping children in conflict-affected regions, you can make a practical difference to children’s lives in war zones.
