We’ve all seen the horror and heartbreak on the news of the war in Ukraine.
Meanwhile, children in Syria and Yemen are on the frontlines of other devastating conflicts.
Will you help spread a message of hope and solidarity to children caught up in conflicts around the world?
Share a Flower for Children on our social media.
Sharing flowers is a simple act we can all do – children and adults alike. By sharing a flower, you can send a simple, powerful message of solidarity to the children living through the horrors of war.
Flowers can express our feelings when words fail. Feelings of love, grief and new beginnings.
In our child-friendly spaces – where children get the chance to play, learn, feel safe and regain a sense of normality amid conflict – children often draw, paint and photograph flowers as symbols of hope and peace.
