Many children in the affected regions have already been orphaned. Many more are at risk of losing parental care. To make matters worse, such children are being stigmatised by society. In addition, the indefinite closure of schools is already having a devastating impact on education – with children again most affected.
SOS Children’s Villages will be working in the coming months to help children who have been orphaned or are at risk of losing parental care in this crisis. This is a big task and we’re working right now to ensure that we can help as many affected children as possible.
