Flowers can express feelings words can’t.
They can symbolise love, grief, rebirth and new beginnings. In our child-friendly spaces – spaces we set up during emergencies where children play, learn, feel safe and regain a sense of normality in the midst of conflict – children often draw, paint and photograph flowers as symbols of hope and peace.
Every child deserves a future, and we stand alongside them.
As conflict rages around the world – from Ukraine to Syria to Yemen – people across the world are sending a message of solidarity and hope, filling social media feeds, the streets and all sorts of spaces with flowers for children living through conflict.
Across the world, 1 in 6 children are growing up in conflict. Join us in sending a message of solidarity:

In times of crisis, when children are at their most vulnerable, Save the Children is there.
The war on children is raging.
Sign our pledge to help protect children in conflicts such as Syria, Yemen and Ukraine.
We demand that children caught up in war are given three things: safety, justice and the practical help they need to stay safe and recover.
Will you help us stop the war on children? Sign our pledge:
World leaders must always uphold international law to protect children in conflict.
Anyone who commits a war crime against children must be held accountable.
Children in warzones need practical support on the ground to protect and care for them, and to help them recover.
Join our global movement today to stand with the millions of children in danger.
By demanding change from governments and by supporting our recovery programs helping children on the ground, together we can make a difference to children’s lives in war zones.
