Now, more than ever, they need you.

For more than three generations, the goal of SOS Children’s Villages has been to make sure that all children have a loving home and an equal chance to succeed in life.

We need your help to reach that goal.

For many of the 570 million children who are born into poverty and the 220 million children who are without parental care or are at risk of losing it, SOS works to ensure that no child grows up alone. In 136 countries, for children who face exploitation, discrimination, violence, illness and exposure to natural disasters, we provide the hope of a caring family and a bright future.

Today, we invite you to join with us to give the gift of hope to a child who has no one left to turn to.
