Stopping wars, one person at a time

Every day, people suffer and lives are destroyed because of war. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Peace Direct is an international charity dedicated to stopping wars, one person at a time.

In every conflict local people are building peace – stopping violence, uniting communities and saving lives. These local people disarm rebels, resettle refugees, protect the vulnerable, unite communities and restart economies. They work at great personal risk to prevent, resolve and heal conflicts in some of the world’s most fragile countries.

It’s not just immediate aid, but working with local people for as long as it takes to help them develop lasting solutions. We don’t run expensive in-country offices and we never impose outside solutions. We work with the local people who are there making a difference before, during and after war. 

The impact is powerful. Together, we can help save more lives.

You can help support local people to stop wars and save lives. For more information, visit their website www.peacedirect.org. To help support their work, sign up to play People's Postcode Lottery.
