SOS CHILDREN’S VILLAGES IMPACT
What SOS Children's Villages Did to Help
Across the three Ebola-affected countries, SOS Children’s Villages is currently helping to raise more than 800 children among eight different villages. Once we ensured the safety of the children and staff within our villages, we helped support the local communities.
In Sierra Leone, for example, we evaluated the needs of children orphaned by Ebola, welcoming some into our villages and providing others with food, medical care and psychological support. In addition, when Sierra Leone shut down schools last September, we provided home study materials to the more than 2,000 students who attend our six schools in Makeni, Bo and Freetown.
