“I believe education is a cornerstone to help children overcome their challenges,” Fidaa, SOS mother, SOS Children’s Village Bethlehem in the Palestinian Territories.
“The love I feel from the children is what makes me the happiest about my work at SOS Children’s Villages, because their feelings are sincere and they genuinely express them. This is what gratifies me the most as an SOS mother.
My favourite time during the day is study time. Because I’m aware that children who are in our care have been through tough moments and because I believe education is a cornerstone to help children overcome their challenges and have a brighter future.
I also like playing with the children. It allows me to discover their talents and abilities and to help them to develop them. Playing also enhances the family bond between children as brothers and sisters and helps them to integrate and interact with one another.”
Fidaa joined SOS Children’s Villages in 2011. Now she takes care of seven children.
