The children we support in Kachin State, Myanmar have recently received new 'crocs' and raincoats to help them cope with the heavy rains and flooding in the remote mountain camps where they live.
Plummeting temperatures in Lebanon throughout January and February created freezing conditions for Syrian refugee families surviving in canvas shelters at a time when fuel is completely unaffordable. They have been in desperate need of help to heat their homes.
Thanks to an appeal this winter, our supporters have helped provide fuel vouchers for 319 families, so they can stay warm.
Border closures and conflict have left hundreds of families without food and basic supplies in Kachin State, Myanmar where Children on the Edge work with displaced communities, living in remote mountain camps. Our food relief programme has just ensured that 970 households received emergency food parcels, to last them a month. Find out more below.
Children on the Edge works in coalition with local communities in some of the toughest places in the world, transforming the lives of marginalised children by creating protective environments where they can safely live, play, learn and grow.
It will come as no surprise that our focus in 2020-2021 has been responding to the coronavirus pandemic and it’s devastating effects in every area where we work.
