Flowers for Children.

The power of sharing flowers

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.

Share a message of solidarity for children living in war zones 

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.

What Save the Children does to support children in conflict.

In times of crisis, when children are at their most vulnerable, Save the Children is there. 

  • We are always among the first organisations to deliver life-saving support and humanitarian aid for children and their families.  
  • We provide access to safe, inclusive, quality education for children, so their education isn’t disrupted. 
  • We create child-friendly spaces, where children have the opportunity to play, learn, feel safe and regain a sense of normality in the midst of conflict. 
  • When children experience trauma, we work to ensure they receive the care, rehabilitation and psychosocial support they need to be children again. 
  • And we provide families with cash support, food and kits containing blankets, solar-powered lamps and kitchen utensils, so they can meet basic needs like food, rent and medicines.
