‘Songs of War’ was created by Soundcheque Founder Laura Westcott after working closely with Sunday Times War photographer Paul Conroy after he escaped from Syria in 2012.

The competition aims to bring awareness and support to War Child’s work in striving for a world where children’s lives are no longer torn apart by war.

Their aim is to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out, and stay to support them through their recovery – helping to keep them safe, give them an education, and equip them with skills for the future.

Donations to the competition will be paid directly to War Child after Soundcheque has accrued minimal running costs.
