War Child is a London-based charity that provides life-changing support to the most vulnerable children whose families, communities and schools have been torn apart by war. Working in Congo, Central African Republic, Afghanistan, Iraq, Uganda, Syria and Gaza, War Child’s vital work includes creating safe spaces where children can escape from battlefields or dangers of life on the streets, getting children into school or informal educaton after conflict or poverty has cost them the chance of an education, helping young people and their families learn the vocational skills they can earn a sustainable income from, and helping children get their voices heard and their rights met, and helping local people to protect their children better.

You can find all of the lots on offer here – the auction ends tomorrow at midday. Please do bid generously!
