The situation in SOS Children's Villages Italy is critical due to
the COVID-19 pandemic. Over 500 children are isolated in their homes for their
protection. We are working tirelessly, day and night, to provide them with
trust and love in this difficult time. But to overcome this emergency, they also need concrete help to prevent longer-term effects by protecting their mental health, educational progress, and economic stability.
Removed from their friends and
their schools, this isolation and distance create a void, especially for children
who come from difficult pasts—but these measures are necessary to protect them from
the risk of infection.
Now more than ever, the
children at SOS Italy need your support. You can help ensure that vulnerable
children survive this confusing and scary time.
“Our work is made of cuddles,
closeness, of gestures of love to erase children’s fears. All of this risks
disappearing.” – Marta, SOS Village Director of Vicenza, Italy
