At SOS Children, we believe every child should grow up with security and in a safe environment. When a natural disaster or conflict threatens children's safety, we take action to protect them and help families recover.

Our emergency relief focuses on children who have lost parental care, or are at risk of doing so. We follow these principles in our emergency work:
  • We take a long-term and community-based approach

  • We provide services that are in the best interests of each child
  • We keep children together with families

  • We prepare for emergencies

  • We cooperate with others for an effective response
