You Play, So Every Child Can

London, United Kingdom – 14 July 2021 – War Child UK is holding another great Sporting Champions fundraiser to help support children and young people whose lives have been affected by war.  The Sporting Champions campaign provides the opportunity for gamers to make an impact by purchasing sports themed video games via a Steam sale - proceeds from which will help fund the charity's work in protecting, educating and standing up for the rights of children caught up in conflict. Sporting Champions takes place today, 14 July.

War Child UK is the only specialist charity for children affected by conflict. For more than two decades we’ve been driven by a single goal – for no child’s life to be torn apart by war. We aim to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out and stay to support them through their recovery – keeping them safe, helping them learn and cope with their experiences, and equipping them with skills for the future.

We understand children’s needs, respect their rights, and put them at the centre of the solution and campaign for changes to policies and practices to support children in conflict, working with children and young people themselves to demand their rights.

Together with our partners we deliver our vital, life-saving work in 15 countries across Africa, Asia and the Middle East, and Latin America.
