In April 2008, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, the First Lady of France, visited the SOS Children's Village in Gammarth, Tunisia.

Together with Tunisian Minister Sarra Kanoun Jarraya, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was introduced to various activities at the SOS Children's Village. They visited family houses, the girls' youth house, the social-pedagogic facilities and spoke to the children and SOS Mothers.

Bruni-Sarkozy even found time to sing with the children!

Evidently taken with the visit, Bruni-Sarkozy explained to the press that SOS Children's Villages is doing wonderful work and that the children seemed very happy.

SOS has a total of three villages in Tunisia including Siliana and Mahr├Ęs. An additional project is underway in Akouda, in the region of Sousse, which is financed by SOS Children's Villages - France.
