You can help a child who has lost their parents.

They may have been orphaned by AIDS, natural disaster or conflict. Poverty may have forced their parents to give them up, or they may have been separated from their family by war. Whatever their story, you can give them a new family and a loving home in an SOS Children's Village. You can also help fragile families stay together so children grow up with their parents.

Sponsor a child

The best way to give is to sponsor a child. You can sponsor from only £20 a month (67p a day). Regular sponsorship money is essential for the long-term commitment we make to the children in our care.
