“When I had to flee my country, I only had the clothes I am wearing, not even a pair of sandals. I came here with nothing.” Taslima, age 10, Rohingya refugee
When an emergency strikes, children like Taslima lose everything. Separated from their parents, family and friends. Displaced from their homes. Deprived of their childhoods.
There are millions of children around the world who are living in communities affected by war, civil violence and natural disasters. They urgently need your help. Their lives are torn apart by emergencies like the Rohingya refugee crisis in Myanmar or the recent earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia.
After the immediate emergency response, the crisis doesn’t end for children like Taslima. Often, they find themselves in desperate circumstances, at risk of hunger, cold, disease, and violence. Your donation can help change this.
All that’s left for children in crisis is a daily battle for survival. There will be children who are still suffering from hunger, fear and sadness, not of joy and hope – but you can help make sure children in crisis survive, and thrive.

If you’re filing your tax return for the first time, have never claimed donations or donated at all, you’re probably wanting to know more about how you can claim donations to charity on your taxes. We’ve answered some of the most important questions about tax deductible donations below.
You can only claim for donations which are monetary gifts, given without the promise of something in return. Raffle tickets, charity chocolates, events and other donations of this kind, are not tax deductible.
At ChildFund, all regular giving donations over $2 are tax deductible including child sponsorship, community sponsorship and donations to appeals. A few donation categories are not tax deductible, for example, birthday gifts to your sponsored child and are not included on your annual tax receipt.
Your generous donation will go towards the appeal you have selected above. If we exceed our appeal target, any extra funds from generous supporters like you, will be directed to other ChildFund projects that address the causes and impacts of poverty for children in these communities.
Yes you will. A tax receipt for your one-off donation should arrive within 14 days. For regular monthly donations, including child sponsorship, tax receipts are sent annually, towards the end of July. Please keep your contact details updated so we can ensure you receive your tax receipt.
