Ways to Help

Since 1949, SOS Children’s Villages has been guided by a basic principle: a loving home for every child. SOS is the largest charity working with orphaned and abandoned children. Please take a moment to see how you can help make a difference today.


We offer sponsorships, donors appreciate the receiving updates from the field, it really helps explain how your donations make a difference.  We support children for their young lives, so the commitment of sponsorship really helps us maintain care so children can grow to independence.


One time donations help ongoing operations and shorter-term projects and programs and we really appreciate this as well.

SOS Mayday Emergency Fund

The SOS Children's Villages mission during an emergency is to ensure that children are protected from abuse, neglect, exploitation and are generally kept safe.


Our emergency response teams have so far helped children at risk in more than 120 emergency situations around the world.
