Why mums matter

An SOS mother with her children

Mums are an essential part of childhood for every child, and Mother’s Day is a time to show our gratitude.

But not every boy or girl can grow up with their own mother. At SOS Children’s Villages, we give thousands of children a new home in the care of a devoted SOS mother.

By nurturing and supporting children as they grow up in an SOS family, our SOS mothers help even the most vulnerable child develop and thrive.
