SOS Day is celebrated on June 23rd every year to commemorate the birth anniversary of Hermann Gmeiner, founder of SOS Children’s Villages. To celebrate the joyous occasion, a cultural programme is organised across all projects of SOS India, where children, along with their mothers and village co-workers indulge in offering prayers and other fun filled activities. The ceremonies also include singing the special birthday song for the occasion.
SOS Children’s Villages, the brainchild of Dr. Hermann Gmeiner, has been involved in giving abandoned and parentless children a loving family like atmosphere to grow up in for 68 years. In SOS Children’s Villages, children are nurtured with nothing but love and care within a well-protected environment.
