“After fleeing the war in Sudan myself, I can relate to children who have faced the same ordeal.”

Stephen Kang, a Save the Children facilitator for children at a transit centre in Renk, South Sudan, recounts his personal experience fleeing the war in Sudan:

“We set out on April 24. All I had with me was my backpack with a few clothes. There was no room to take anything else. You had to pay more for suitcases. About 17 of us were packed into that car – inside, on the roof, we were everywhere.


Yes, I want to help children in crisis

Stop the War on Children, whatever it takes

Stop the War on Children, whatever it takes

When conflicts and wars erupt, the result is always the same – a war on children. It doesn’t matter where or why, children always pay the heaviest price. Children are terrified, their sense of safety shattered. Many are forced from their homes. They struggle without basic food, water, and shelter. Their education is disrupted and their futures are put on hold.

Whatever the reason, wherever in the world, violence and trauma turns children’s lives upside down.
