Your child sponsorship:
Ending hunger, empowering children

Child hunger statistics in the world reveal a stark reality for children. Malnutrition and child hunger in the world are responsible for 45% of deaths in children under the age of five, and orphaned children are among the most vulnerable, facing increased risks of malnutrition and starvation due to lack of resources and support.

The impact on orphaned children

The facts about child hunger are even more dire when we look at the impact on children without care or at risk of losing it:

  • Access to food: Orphaned children often lack access to basic nutrition, facing hunger as a daily reality.
  • Malnutrition: Malnutrition not only stunts a child’s physical growth but also hinders their cognitive development, limiting future opportunities.
  • Long-term health: Hunger exacerbates health issues, making children more susceptible to diseases and infections.

How your child sponsorship makes a difference

Child sponsorship is a unique opportunity to help world hunger and make a real difference for a child.

  • Direct impact: When you sponsor a child with SOS Children’s Villages, you provide a lifeline for a vulnerable child, ensuring they have access to nutritious meals.
  • Holistic support: Unlike other child hunger charities, your child sponsorship with SOS provides more than food; your sponsored child receives comprehensive support, including healthcare, education, and emotional well-being.
  • Empowerment: By sponsoring a child, you empower a special girl or boy to break the cycle of poverty and hunger, creating a ripple effect that transforms entire communities.

Real results: Changing lives, one child at a time

  • Nutrition security: Through your child sponsorship, a child receives regular, nutritious meals, supporting their physical and mental development.
  • Health improvement: With access to proper nutrition and healthcare, sponsored children in SOS Children’s Villages experience improved health, reducing the risk of diseases and infections.
  • Educational opportunities: Well-fed children can concentrate better in school, enhancing their learning potential and paving the way for a brighter future.
  • Community development: Your contribution doesn't just benefit one child but uplifts entire communities, fostering sustainable development and resilience against hunger.
