Side by Side

You can help refugee children build a better future

We’re asking you to help us to support children like Siraj by donating £15 a month.

We will send you email updates from Siraj and his family for the first 6 months, where you’ll be able to watch his story and see how your money could help children like him.

Siraj is 13 years old. Despite his age, his mother looks to him as the man of the house.

Since his father died and his family were forced to flee their home, he has been working to support her, and his younger siblings.

His education, and the simple pleasures of being a child must come second. 

Millions of children have had their lives torn apart by conflict. Too many are forced into child labour just to keep their families alive. 

But your support could help children in the world’s toughest places to thrive.

By joining Side by Side today, you’ll give children a chance to overcome their experiences and simply be children again.
