If we raise €5.175 we can provide a medical tent in one of the transition facilities. Please help the lost children of South Sudan!

To protect and support the lost children of South Sudan, SOS Children’s Villages is starting an emergency intervention for 400 unaccompanied children aged 2 to 12 years.

The proposed intervention intends to reintegrate children with their families and, while they are in transit facilities in Juba and Malakal, to give them adequate shelter, care and psychosocial support.

Problem statement

At SOS Children’s Villages we believe that children can only develop to their full potential if they have a supportive and protective family environment. We work to make this a reality. At the centre of our SOS Children’s Villages programme is the individual child. We encourage children to actively take part in the making of decisions that affect their lives.

Goal

Our goal is to provide a loving and safe family setting for children so they can reach their full potential.

Main activities

Family strengthening programme`s SOS Children’s Villages works with disadvantaged families in order to prevent crises that can lead to family separation. They offer various forms of support to strengthen and stabilise families as much as possible so that children can grow up in their own families. The aim is always to build the skills and capacities of carers and of their communities so that children can enjoy positive and caring relationships. SOS children`s villages When children lost their parents or cannot be raised in their biological family, SOS Children's Villages offers family-based care. Worldwide there are 518 SOS children's villages that provide a loving home to these children. Here they grow up within a SOS family, with a mother and brothers and sisters, until they are independent young adults.

  • Family Care for Medan

    SOS Children's Villages supports vulnerable families with Family Strengthening Programs designed to prevent child abandonment. If this is not possible we offer children a loving home in one of the SOS children's villages. At this moment we provide a loving home for 119 children in the SOS Children's Village in Medan. Every child in the SOS children’s Village has its own story. The children lost their homes in earthquakes or the tsunami, lived on the streets and were often severely malnourished when they arrived in the children’s village. A number of children are victims of severe abuse and mistreatment. And many children have lost their parents through traffic accidents and illness by excessive alcohol use. Poverty also plays a major role.

  • Worshippers

    We have a strong sense that we are all blessed to be a blessing. Having received God's love we are supposed to pass this on, without looking at people's backgrounds, religion, race. gender. Children especially are vulnerable, but in this age of human trafficking, anyone can become a victim today. That's why we want to make a difference!
