SOS on Facebook


When parents are unable to pay for the basic necessities their children need (such as medical and school bills, food, clean water, or electricity), children are at much greater risk of being abandoned. To prevent child abandonment, SOS Children’s Villages has implemented family strengthening programs around the world to provide support to families who need it most.

Oftentimes these families are single parent households, have been affected by HIV/AIDS, or face serious financial disadvantages. Through these programs SOS aims to keep families together, while at the same time building safe environments for children to thrive in.
