Families and their children are more vulnerable than ever

The Tenth Anniversary of the International Year of the Family

14/05/2004 - Ten years after the United Nations proclaimed 1994 as the International Year of the Family, families around the globe remain vulnerable, while millions of children are orphaned and abandoned. SOS Children's Villages both supports families at risk of abandoning their children, and provides long-term family-based care for children who can no longer live with their biological families.
