SOS Children's Villages strongly condemns all forms of violence and all acts that may harm children. We have a very strict child protection policy and we always act in the best interests of the child by striving to provide the necessary support to the child or adolescent.

Visitors are welcome in SOS Children's Villages. Seeing for yourself the impact of your engagement is a rewarding experience. In order for your visit to be a success, we kindly ask you to notify us at least one month in advance. Visiting the village is only possible in the company of an SOS employee who must make himself available to accompany you, so it is necessary to make an appointment beforehand. The supported child is never left alone in the company of the godfather or godmother who wants to get to know him. An SOS employee must make himself available to act as an interpreter and guide for visitors, so it is necessary to make an appointment in advance.
