How we help families
SOS Children's Villages Syria provides initial assistance to families whose children are at risk of abandonment. Such assistance is in the form of material, educational, health, legal and psycho-social support. Once these basics needs are met, the program provides the families with additional skills and knowledge to help them secure their livelihoods and become self-sufficient. This is achieved by providing counselling services, vocational training, domestic economic skills, or assisting with setting up income-generation projects for the families.
