Be a Hero for a Child in Crisis

Kathy Kladopoulos

WHY ARE CHILDREN IN CRISIS?
Poverty, disease and humanitarian crises make children extremely vulnerable to being orphaned or abandoned or to simply losing a safe place to sleep at night. To make matters worse, a record number of people in 2016 are living as refugees due to war, conflict and persecution. The resulting instability and violence pose critical problems for the people displaced, especially children.

HOW CAN YOU BE A HERO?
Founded in 1949, SOS Children’s Villages supports vulnerable children and their families in 134 countries and territories, including the United States. Join us and Be a Hero for a Child in Crisis by helping provide as much relief to as many vulnerable children as possible. See below for examples of what your heroism could mean.
