Sponsor a child in Eastern Europe

sponsor a child in Bulgaria

Despite relative prosperity, many children across Europe are not able to live with their biological parents - sometimes due to neglect, homelessness, abuse or poverty. SOS Children has been caring for vulnerable children in Europe for over 60 years. 

Today, we care for over 2000 children in nearly 40 SOS Children's Villages in Western and Eastern Europe. Our projects in Western Europe are funded by the country they are in. However, Children's Villages in Eastern Europe need your support. It is in these countries that you can sponsor a child, and give them a happy childhood and bright future.  

"It was fascinating to see the work the charity is doing out there – the homes are so comfortable and feel like really normal family homes, something which I'm sure some of these children had never experienced before coming here."

- Harriet, who sponsors a child in Ukraine.
