Protection of children and their families
WE BRING CHILDREN WHO ARE IN DANGER TO SAFETY, AND WE MAKE SURE THEY GET THE FOOD, CLOTHING, MEDICAL CARE AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT THEY NEED. AND WE GIVE EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE TO TRAUMATIZED FAMILIES, SO CHILDREN CAN SAFELY STAY WITH THEIR PARENTS AND SIBLINGS.
EMERGENCY RELIEF FOR VULNERABLE CHILDREN
In times of war and disaster, children need specific protection and care. With our established global infrastructure, network of partners, and trusted recognition as a reliable and effective partner in quality care, we launch emergency response programs for children and families who need urgent assistance. Our emergency response teams have helped children at risk in more than 150 humanitarian situations around the world.
When Ebola struck West Africa, SOS took care of children orphaned by the epidemic, welcoming them into SOS families in SOS villages.
Every emergency is different, but with our decades of experience and our presence in 135 countries, we are able to quickly assess what is needed, and to make sure that affected children are cared for and protected.
Extreme circumstances impact family and community resilience, putting children at an increased risk of losing parental care and protection when they need it most.
