War child helps children from other countries that have been victims of war..
Here's some more information off the "War Child International Website"

War Child International is a network of independent organisations, working across the world to help children affected by war. War Child was founded upon a fundamental goal: to advance the cause of peace through investing hope in the lives of children caught up in the horrors of war.
War Child keeps fighting for children long after the war has finished, trying to ensure that children who have witnessed what should never be seen - murder, violence, rape - have all they need to begin the long process of rebuilding their lives.

There is no shortage of demand, and the War Child International offices are proud to be contributing to the cause of peace by investing in the wellbeing of children and young people.

Here is a story about a little girl in Iraq that was hurt badly due to war, that war child helped.

War Child Canada is working with their local partner, Muslim Hands, to rehabilitate local public schools, improve educational resources and infrastructure to support the education and healthy emotional development of approximately 2,000-3,000 children. The project will also focus on capacity building professionals and women to better equip them to care for children both physically and psychologically.

Working with its local partner, Al Amal, War Child Canada is providing training in peace-building, conflict resolution and youth engagement. By establishing a resource and training centre in Baghdad, youth, especially girls, will be connected through War Child Canada’s existing and innovative No War Zone website to a community of youth around the world working together for peace, human rights and understanding.

The primary focus of this war Child Supported project is to provide the opportunity for children, youth, women and other vulnerable community members to recover and rebuild from the trauma of war, violence and poverty.
