The Children for Peace ONLUS is an Italian NGO founded in 2005 with the express purpose of assisting children worldwide who are in need of fundamental survival support. Children caught up in the wars of hunger, of starvation, of illness, of armed conflict, of illiteracy and of isolation from opportunity.
The task of remedying these situations is great, and often, to others, impossible, the supporters know that the only way adversity is overcome is to confront it head-on and take all necessary actions to create change. It is with this in mind, that The Children for Peace was founded. Furthermore all donations they receive go directly to the projects.
