General information on Sweden

In the mid-1960s, the idea of SOS Children's Villages reached Sweden. On 2 July 1964, the Committee "Swedish Friends for SOS Children's Villages" (Kommittén för SOS-Barnbyarnas Vänner i Sverige) was formed in the capital city of Stockholm. Its aim was to support SOS Children's Villages all over the world, especially in developing countries. In 1972, the official Swedish promoting association, SOS-Barnbyar Sverige, was founded.
