SOS Children's Villages in Ukraine

The children and families of Ukraine have endured more than a year of escalating violence, trauma, destruction and displacement. Children continue to be killed, wounded and deeply traumatized by violence that has sparked displacement on a scale and speed not seen since World War II. Schools, hospitals and other civilian infrastructure on which they depend continue to be damaged or destroyed. Families have been separated and lives torn apart. SOS Children’s Villages is carefully monitoring the situation, has emergency plans in place and is committed to continue to provide support.

There are nearly eight millions Children living in the Ukraine. An increasing number of children are being brought up in single-parent households where the parent may struggle to care for their children. This is especially hard in rural areas, where young women who have children out of marriage face discrimination. These children are at a higher risk of living in poverty and ending up in care.

The information below refers to the activities what SOS Children's Villages in Ukraine have been carrying out in the country since 2003. Due to the current conflict, our activities are already changing to provide specialised support in this emergency situation.

Strengthen families: Since 2003 we have been supporting families who are at risk of breaking down. The help we provide varies depending on the needs of each family but can include counselling, social and material support. Due to COVID-19 and the political situation, much of this support is provided remotely wherever possible.

Care in families: Children without parental care find a loving home in one of the SOS families. The families have the legal status of "foster families" and receive all the support they need from SOS Children's Villages. We also provide short-term care for children in crisis situations. The children stay with us (usually less than six months) until they can return to their families, or move to another form of family-based care.

Emergency assistance: We support both families who are living in the conflict areas and those who have been internally displaced. We provide medical, educational and social support. The need for psychotherapy tripled after autumn 2015. In spite of the dangerous working conditions we have continued to support families in the Lugansk region. Our support in 2022 will adapt to the changing situation.

Support for young people: We provide young people with support and advice until they are able to live independently.

Advocacy: SOS Children's Villages works with the government and other agencies to promote social reform that improves the rights of children in the country.

I'll appreciate all the support I can get. Together we can make sure every child has a loving home! Best - Yingkai Deng
