The Israeli SOS Children's Villages Association was founded in 1977 in order to look after children who had lost parental care. The organisation started working with children and young people in Arad, and later, in 1997, in Midgal HaEmek. The work of SOS Children's Villages has adapted to meet the changing local needs. We provide family-based care for children who have lost parental care and support young adults until they are able to live independently. We also assist families and children in the community.
