 Emergency Response 

You can help children and families in crisis

URGENT EMERGENCY RESPONSE:

War in Ukraine

As war wages on in Ukraine, our top priority is to protect the 2,099 children and adults in Ukraine who rely on us for direct assistance.

We’ve successfully evacuated multiple groups of children, foster parents and staff members to safety at SOS Children’s Villages in Poland, and we continue to protect children and families who remain in Ukraine—but we don’t know what the coming days will bring.

We urgently need your help to rush them food, water, medical supplies, educational resources and vital psychotherapy support.

Children are the most vulnerable in times of crisis. Natural disasters, conflict and other emergencies put children at an increased risk of losing care—exactly when they need it most.

When humanitarian crises occur, SOS Children’s Villages is there to quickly move children out of harm’s way and into safe environments. With a trusted and enduring presence in 137 countries around the world, our locally-led teams are uniquely positioned to protect children before, during and after emergencies.
