Be A Hero for a Child in Crisis

Friends - thanks for clicking on my link to learn more about why children are in crisis and how you, your family, friends, church, place of work can help! Please share my link or set-up your own fundraising page. Thank you for your interest and support!

Every gift really does make a difference one child at a time. I know. I currently sponsor two children -- one in Bindura, Zimbabwe and one in Managua, Nicaragua, as well as a Village in Russia.

SOS is their home -- something my gift helps provide, along with an education and healthcare. Without a doubt, it is the best and most rewarding $105 I spend every month! Unfortunately, there are so many more children in need ...and you can help.

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. A record number of people in 2015 are living as refugees due to war, conflict and persecution. The resulting instability and violence pose critical problems for the people displaced, especially children.

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.

Supplies baby formula for 8 babies in Macedonia who have fled war-torn countries such as Syria with their families.

Supplies food, water and shelter to 1 child in Nepal for 1 month.

Helps support one-year of food, shelter, clothing, education and medical care for one child in Haiti.

Winter clothing for 10 children in the Ukraine including jackets, shoes, gloves, a hat, and a scarf.

Gives 5 children without a parent or guardian in Syria a year of shelter, food, psychological support and family-reunification services.

Provides one year of primary-school tuition for 30 children in India who otherwise would not receive a quality education.

Supplies food, water and shelter to 10 children without a parent or legal guardian in Nepal for 18 months.
