Strengthen Families Stories
Our Support to young people and families
Every day, SOS Children’s Villages in Liberia is supporting many more young people and families to work their way out of poverty. Here are just a few of the people who SOS Children’s Villages have reached — telling their stories…
“I felt hopeless when the father of my children abandoned us, but now I’m comfortable through the support of SOS Children's Villages. I’m currently working as a mechanic apprentice which is something I never thought I could do, and this allows me to save some money to support my children. I’m at a very exciting time of my life right now. I also enjoy the meetings which are also a rare opportunity to share ideas, build up a support network with other mothers like me and learn about positive parenting, safeguarding, and protection.”
“SOS Liberia is the only organization so far to carry out quality health care delivery services in the Matadi community free of charge. A team of medical professionals was able to treat cases such as malaria, diabetes, typhoid, and other sicknesses as well as educate people on the prevention of malaria and other diseases.”
“Many days I used to wake up and nowhere to turn, not even a daily meal for my children. I shed tears, but today through the SOS Liberia family strengthening program, I am doing a business that is helping me to put food on the table.”
“SOS Children's Villages in Liberia is one of the Ministry's biggest partners. A lot of the people that benefited from their programme are productive citizens and contributing members of society. They are developing generations”.
