SOS Children's Villages in Pakistan ready to take in unaccompanied children
All children, staff and facilities of SOS Children's Villages in Pakistan are safe after the devastating floods in the region. SOS - Pakistan has offered its assistance to the government with a focus on providing temporary shelter to unaccompanied children.
In addition to the eight SOS Children's Villages in the country (another four are under construction)
SOS Children's Villages has a strong history of providing emergency relief for disaster areas. In 2005, after the Kashmir earthquake, SOS launched an emergency relief program to provide immediate aid to children and families across the affected area and admitted several orphaned children to nearby SOS Villages for the long-term. In Haiti, SOS continues to provide temporary shelter, food distribution services, and open schools to orphaned children and local communities affected by the January earthquakes.
