New report calls for concerted action to improve care standards for children in Africa
A newly published research report highlights how eight African countries have failed to implement UN Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children; lack of leadership, resources and information cited.
18 June 2014 - LILONGWE, MALAWI – Five years after the UN adopted the Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children, key aspects of the global standards have yet to be implemented, according to a report authored by policy experts and released today.
16/05/2013 - Improving the quality of care for vulnerable children is a global issue. Delegates at a conference at the SOS Children’s Villages International headquarters in Innsbruck, Austria, have today highlighted how this can be addressed through a campaign that boldly sets out to achieve quality care for every child.
24/07/2012 – When a group of Swedish plumbers helped provide clean drinking water via SOS Children’s Villages to a community in Benin, not only did they improve the health of thousands, they gained from a partnership that delivers a fundamental right.
SOS Children's Villages will launch an emergency relief programme to support 500 children and families affected by floods. Victims of the inundations will be provided with supplies to cover the most urgent needs.
After Benin suffered the heaviest inundations the West African country has seen in decades, SOS Children's Villages has decided to help children and their families in the municipality of Bonou, in the Ouémé department. Here, several hectares of crops were destroyed, houses damaged and livestock decimated.
