The 2015 International Annual Report describes how SOS Children’s Villages around the world supported children and strengthened families and communities in 2015 through community-integrated responses in care, education, health and emergency services.
The 573 SOS Children’s Villages around the world in 2015 are described as ‘care and protection hubs’ for their local communities, as they provided a range of locally-tailored services to support vulnerable children.
The first World Humanitarian Summit, which will take place in Istanbul, Turkey, in May 2016, will bring together governments, humanitarian organisations, and people affected by humanitarian crises to propose solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. In the months leading up to the Summit, ensuring that children’s voices are heard in these discussions is a key priority for Plan International.
SOS Children’s Villages International is continuing to respond in every possible way to the global humanitarian crisis of refugees and displaced people. Emergency response activities are underway in the Middle East and across Europe, bringing much needed relief to refugee children and their families.
Globally, SOS Children’s Villages is working to prevent the problems that create refugees, to support children and families in their path to safety, and to provide care for unaccompanied children in the destination countries.
The 2014 International Annual Report of SOS Children's Villages, published today, presents risk factors for family breakdown and positive impacts of family strengthening, along with programme statistics and financial results.
