SOS Children's Villages is a non-governmental organisation helping children in 133 countries. In Norway the organisation is called SOS barnebyer. The organisation work with children without parental care and families in difficult living conditions. Every child needs a loving home to flourish in, and SOS Children's Villages help families make it happen all over the world. Families need to care for and protect their children: a loving home in a safe and supportive community. Sometimes parents are not able to care for their children alone; sometimes children lose their parents or never knew them. These are the children SOS Children's Villages help.
