As one of the most popular and well-known charities in The Netherlands, War Child is now coming to Sweden.With the ever-growing need for support for children affected by conflict and the potential for a new, young and inspiring non-profit organization in Sweden, the Insamlingsstiftelsen War Child Sweden has been established. In the short period that War Child has been targeting Sweden, it has made many friends and already build a strong network. The organization was humbled to receive grants from among others H.M. Queen Silvia’s Foundation ´Care about the Children´ and Postkodlotteriets Kultur Stiftelse. With this support, War Child can offer psycho−social support, child protection and education, supporting children to find the strength to rebuild their lives. Furthermore, it enables War Child to raise awareness for the situation of children affected by conflict and advocate for their rights.
