Help for families in need - We Strengthen Families
Today, 1 in 10 children and young people are separated from their families, abandoned, neglected or forced to live in an abusive environment, growing up without the support they need to prepare them for their future.
Due to challenging circumstances, parents/families struggle to provide their children with a loving and stable home.
SOS Children's Villages in South Africa helps families who are in acute danger of breaking up. SOS Children’s Villages' assistance includes a wide range of tailored support, advice and education services aimed at needy children and their parents to help families overcome their challenges and help keep them together. Parents/ families receive strengthening through counseling, skills development, and they are empowered with the resources they need to overcome their difficulties. This also includes kinship care to support children to live with their extended family. With strong families, children and young people can receive the care and support they need to thrive.
