SOS Children’s Villages is the world’s largest charity protecting children who have lost parental care.
No child should have to grow up alone, yet millions of children worldwide have been orphaned, abandoned, abused or separated from families who love them due to war, natural disasters and extreme poverty.
SOS Children’s Villages works in 125 countries worldwide to prevent children from losing their families, and to offer children who have nobody to care for them the chance to grow up in a safe and loving family-like environment. We help families reunite in times of war and disaster, stay together through the hard times, lift themselves out of poverty and give their children the happy childhoods and brighter futures they deserve.
At our unique village communities around the world children without parental care can grow up in a family household, with their own SOS mother, brothers and sisters, and the support of a community of families. With access to quality education, healthcare and all the benefits a loving family can offer, children who have lost everything can find all the support and care they need to thrive.
