SOS Children's Villages UK
SOS Children is a global charity which provides orphans and vulnerable children with a stable and positive family life. We protect and improve the lives of children in 125 countries, working with communities to keep fragmenting families together, and where this is not possible, building new families for children at risk.
Working together with deprived communities, we identify needs and provide practical and emotional tools for parents and caregivers to prevent family breakdown. When children lose their families and have nothing and no one, we ensure that they can grow up in a safe environment by creating new families. Headed by SOS mothers, families live together in our unique SOS Children’s Villages, which are located in the heart of communities. We establish schools and medical centres to ensure that more children have the opportunity of an education and access to quality medical care. Every year, our programmes reach over two million people.
