Following the recent Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict held by The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in association with War Child UK, it has been announced that artist Charming Baker has raised over £40,000 for the charity.

Baker raised the sum through sales of an exclusive limited edition print depicting a fallen dove of peace, which was created especially for the conference. Produced by the artist’s publisher Jealous Gallery, the edition sold out entirely during the four day summit, raising a significant amount for War Child UK. 

The summit made history as the largest ever international gathering to create irreversible global momentum towards ending sexual violence in conflict. It was attended by over 1,200 delegates, including government officials, 200 Foreign Defence and Development ministers, representations from international organisations and a wide range of global experts from the legal, military, humanitarian and NGO sectors.
