Whether in Europe or beyond, a child's first steps in life can often be marked by loneliness and struggle. Children hold the future of the planet in their hands, and yet are defenceless in the face of illness, poverty, or political and ethnic conflict. Children Action was created to help children in need, because the first right of any child is the right to a childhood.
Established in February of 1994, Children Action is a Swiss charitable foundation whose mission is to provide tangible aid to children in Switzerland and elsewhere. Efficiency is the cornerstone of all of Children Action's projects, each of which is set up and implemented by expert teams in fields such as medical and surgical care, psychological support, teenage suicide preventative care and many more.
