“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.”

In 2011 alone, 6.9 million children died before they reached the age of five. As of now 19,000 children under the age of five die every day – 13 children each minute. SOS is working hard to bring those numbers down to 0.

It's back to school time! Many of our SOS children are getting ready to go back to school this week. We know they and all the other children going back this month are going to do great!

“If a child is given love, he becomes loving…If he’s helped when he needs help, he becomes helpful. And if he has been truly valued at home…he grows up secure enough to look beyond himself to the welfare of others.” – Dr. Joyce Brothers #quotes
