SOS Children's Village Bhersaf is close to the town of Bikfaya. Pine trees surround the Village, which is on the slope of a hill and enjoys views of the sea. Children live in family houses with SOS Mother when they can no longer live with their own parents. They attend local schools, and enjoy the sports field and playground at the SOS Village. Once they are ready to take their first steps towards independence they can join move to an SOS Youth Home in Beyrouth. Our SOS Social Centre supports families in the local community. The civil war and resulting economic crisis in Lebanon has created a number of orphaned and abandoned children, making our work in the region vital.
Beirut is home to just one of our Children's Villages around the world. We are updating all the webpages about these Villages, and hope to bring to you more information about our work in Beirut soon.
