We do things differently

Food, water, shelter, emergency care: these are all vital. But would you want your child to just survive? We don’t stop at survival.

Every child has the right to grow up feeling safe, loved and supported in a family, with a parent to provide this. We help this become a reality for children everywhere. Only then can they truly thrive.

We help children who have no one. We help families stay together.

Because no child should be alone.

A life transformed

As a newborn, David was found abandoned in a public toilet in Yamoussoukro, Côte d'Ivoire.

He was taken to hospital for emergency treatment, where the doctor contacted SOS Children’s Villages. 

“I had no idea what he’d been through,” his dedicated carer Germain said. “He kept his eyes closed all the time and never complained of anything except for when he was hungry.” 

But thanks to the support of people like you, David’s recovered well. He’s now a happy, healthy two-year-old, who feels safe, loved and supported.
