SOS Children’s Villages Palestine is a non-governmental, humanitarian and non-profitable organisation created 1966. Our work starts with prevention of family breakdown. We try to keep families together, through our family strengthening programme that offers a range of services to enable families to become financially independent and not find themselves obliged to abandon their children. If this is not possible, we offer alternative care in an SOS Children´s Village. In that sense, we help children and young people who lost parental/family care through alternative family care until they become independent.
