What is SOS Children’s Villages Thailand?
SOS Children’s Villages Thailand or SOS Children Foundation Under The Royal Patronage of H.M. The Queen (Registered name) and has operated in Thailand for over 45 years. Currently, there are five SOS Children’s Villages situated in different locations. We are a public organization that helps children who have lost their parents or families to receive long term care with a new family.
How does SOS Children’s Villages Thailand help children?
We help children who have lost their parents or families to belong in a loving home. Each SOS family has one SOS mother and 10 children living together. Each SOS mother gives the children a home in her heart. Girls and boys of different ages and backgrounds live together as brothers and sisters. SOS families live together in a loving and caring community. There are between 10 – 12 houses located at each village.
What differentiates SOS Children's Villages from other organizations caring for children?
We help children to live in a loving family environment consisting of an SOS mother, brothers and sisters. They receive a reliable and resilient relationship and will each receive individual care that assists in their development. We support these children to become independent, responsible and contributing members of society.
Where does the money come from?
SOS Children’s Villages is an independent, Non Government Organization supported by local and international donors. However, we believe that Thais can help Thais best. There are still a number of children who are waiting for your generous support.
Why should I support SOS Children's Villages for long term?
We offer a long term child care program. We help children start from the beginning to receive individual care and attention until they become independent and responsible. We take full responsibility for each child. Our action is not to admit children to the family but we brought them to the family with a SOS mother, brothers and sisters. Because of your generous long term support, each child is able to live with their SOS family in a loving environment. Consequently, they have an opportunity to have a brighter future in a loving home and become responsible adults in the future.
How do I know that my money is well invested?
We give all children a loving home. This is more meaningful than just providing basic food, clothes, heath care, and education. Your support is valuable. Your generous support allows us to also provide for the basic needs of each child. This gives them the opportunity to grow up and become a responsible person in the future.
