War Child: Living's nominated charity for 2017 09 January 2017
This year we are focusing our fund raising efforts globally to help one charity – War Child.
Founded in 1993, War Child's mission is to protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children caught up in war. Their main objective is to increase the scale of our work and reach more children in conflict areas. In 2015, the number of children, young people and adults who received direct support from them was 126,000.
In 2017, War Child is working actively in Mosul. Thousands of children are in urgent need of help as a result of the military offensive to retake the city. War Child's team is on the ground right now providing ‘safe spaces’ and emergency care for 6,000 boys and girls who have fled the city.
Throughout 2017, at Living we'll be baking, collecting, tasting, selling and donating to help this fantastic cause. If you would like to donate direct please visit https://www.warchild.org.uk/
