School money, seeds or one warm meal a day... Often, very little is needed to ease misery and immediately ensure that a child can survive, a family can stay together, and healthy development can resume. Nutrition, medical care and access to education are deciding factors for children when it comes to their prospects for the future. This is why SOS Children's Villages helps disadvantaged families provide for the basic needs of their children and claim their rights to education and health care.
