The coronavirus has had a huge impact everywhere, but in some of the world’s poorest countries where SOS Children’s Villages works, the effect could be devastating. Children who have lost parents already could now lose other relatives – aunts, uncles, grandparents, even siblings – who might be their main carers. This isn’t just a personal loss to them: without this loving support, they are much less likely to finish school, meaning they’re less likely to get a job and escape poverty.
We are in desperate need of your help. Please donate your Zakat towards our emergency coronavirus appeal and we will ensure the children in our care in Pakistan, Syria and The Gambia get the extra support they are likely to need.
