With Armistice day approaching and marking 100 years since the guns were silenced War Child UK are aiming to raise £250,000 via an Armistice Steam sale of grand proportions.

War Child work around the globe helping children who have had their worlds torn apart by warfare and hope to eradicate it from the future. They work by getting to kids as early as possible when conflict breaks out to support them, keep them safe, educate them and equip them with skills for the future.

The children are put at the center of the solution to stamping out future wars by supporting education, re-integrating child soldiers in the Central African region and promoting justice for young people who are detained in Afghanistan to name but a few initiatives. All in all War Child operates in 15 countries around the world.

Wayne Emanuel, Gaming Partnerships Manager of War Child UK said:

“We’re thrilled with this year’s support from some of most talented people & studios in the sector. Each year we aim to go bigger and we’re hoping that this will be our biggest year yet with a truly diverse range of games supporting Armistice including; the separate story featuring Carey Mulligan in War Child DLC in 11-11: Memories Retold, Dick Wilde joining as our first ever Steam VR title with the addition of ‘Cupid’s Bow’ and The Respawnables bringing back their healer item’.

Carey Mulligan, War Child UK global ambassador, said:

“War Child’s Armistice is a unique and exciting initiative. Peace is denied to too many children around the world, but millions of gamers can help some of the world’s most vulnerable children affected by war by playing games as part of War Child’s Armistice. It’s such an innovative way to fund raise and very simple too – just buying and playing a game you love can help provide crucial support for innocent victims of war.”
