Nongovernmental charitable organization providing services for children without parental care and children at risk of losing parental care. We take actions for children as an independent social development organization. We respect varying religions and cultures, and we work in countries and communities where our mission can contribute to development. We work in the spirit of the United Nation Convention on the Rights of the Child and we promote these rights around the world.
Our work focuses on abandoned, destitute and orphaned children requiring family-based child care. Millions of children worldwide are living without their biological families for a variety of reasons including:
- parental separation,
- domestic violence and neglect,
- they have lost their parents due to war or natural catastrophes,
- disease – including, increasingly, AIDS.
Such children are supported to recover from being emotionally traumatized and to avoid real danger of being isolated, abused, exploited and deprived of their rights. In Kyrgyzstan we provide such children and young adults with a permanent new family, with a ’24 hours a day’ new SOS mother to provide family-based care.
