Support Us


CFAB supports some of the most vulnerable but least visible members of society, identifying and protecting children who have been trafficked into the country or who have fled here to escape harm, persecution, famine or conflict.

As the only UK charity with an international child protection team, we can protect children where others can’t. 

Please help us to protect more vulnerable children and make a donation today.

The story of Christina and Maria

When they were very young, Christina and Maria moved with their mother from the Philippines to the UK. Sadly, a few years later, their mother’s mental health deteriorated. Aged 8 and 6, Christina and Maria were physically and emotionally abused, requiring the police and social services to remove the girls from their mother’s care.

Thankfully, Christina and Maria’s social worker called the CFAB Advice Line to explore the possibility of the sisters being looked after by their aunt and uncle who still lived in the Philippines. Using our unique international network, CFAB’s child protection team were able to contact the girls’ aunt and uncle and organised all of the necessary checks and assessments to ensure returning to family in the Philippines was the best option for them.

CFAB found that the girls’ aunt and uncle were willing and able to provide them with a safe, loving home. We continue to provide support to the family to ensure they are settling into their new life together and that the girls will grow up in a safe and happy environment.
