SOS Children’s Villages of India has always moved deftly to answer the call of the children in need in many natural and man-made disasters. Be it the communal riots in Assam, the gas leak tragedy in Bhopal, earthquakes in Latur, Uttarkashi, Gujarat & Kashmir, terrorism in Kashmir and Punjab, the hurricane in coastal Andhra Pradesh, and Tsunami in Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and Andaman & Nicobar Islands, all these tragedies involved massive destruction and deaths.
Children have been the worst sufferers of these events. While many lost their homes, a large bunch of children lost their families, too. At all these places, SOS Children's Villages of India has undertaken emergency relief work and rehabilitation programmes; we also established various SOS Children’s Villages based on identified needs.
