ABOUT

UK CARE FOR CHILDREN

UK Care for Children was established in 2008 in response to conflict in Lebanon that exacerbated the existing needs of its people. It has since expanded its mission to respond to the ongoing humanitarian needs of Palestinians and those in need throughout the Middle East, with particular focus on Lebanon and Jordan. Our programmes are designed to serve refugee children and their families in the fields of Children’s Welfare, Development Aid, Refugee Relief and Seasonal Humanitarian Aid.

HISTORY

MISSION

Our mission is to create pathways of opportunity for children to overcome the obstacles they face. To do so, we focus on:

  • Working in partnership with local organisations to alleviate poverty
  • Building the capacity and skillsets of local people to create stronger communities
  • Providing humanitarian relief to victims of conflict
  • Improving the quality of life in deprived communities through our education, health and social development projects
  • Ensuring a secure life for orphaned and disadvantaged children

OUR PROJECTS

We focus on the following projects in our areas of operation:

HOW WE WORK

The conflict in Syria and the ongoing displacement of Palestinians has resulted in an unprecedented refugee crisis across the Middle East. We work to ensure that aid reaches families affected by the crisis by using local knowledge that is sensitive to the needs on the ground.

By working with experts in the field, we ensure a high quality of work to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and families, primarily in Jordan and Lebanon. Our aid is multidimensional, sustainable and beneficial for the entire community.
