Donation to SOS Children Villages of Crete

SOS Children’s Villages Greece is a member of SOS Children’s Villages International which is currently active in 136 countries. SOS Children’s Villages have been operating in Greece since 1975, with the aim to help children who have lost or are at risk of losing parental care.

We believe that every child should grow up within a family with love, respect and security, and so our work helps families create a loving home where a child can be a child. We help families care for their children and, when children can no longer live with their own families due to serious social reasons, we provide quality alternative care in one of our Villages or in foster families.

Every SOS Children’s Village is a big family where children are protected, grow with love and enjoy a sense of belonging. Through love and acceptance, children learn to trust and believe in themselves and others, they learn values, share responsibilities and form life-long relationships. We help them recognize and express their individual abilities, interests and talents and we ensure that they receive the education and skills training they need to fulfil their potential.
