International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression: SOS Fellows Make a Difference

June 4th is International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression, a day to recognize the pain and suffering of children around the world who are victims of physical, mental, and emotional abuse.

To commemorate International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression, we recognize all that SOS Children’s Villages has done to care for children who have lost, or are at risk of losing, parental care. Since 1949 SOS Children’s Villages has supported orphaned children by helping them find families and caring communities. Today, SOS Children’s Villages works in 135 countries, supporting the efforts of those seeking to prevent violence, protect childhood, and help make societies safe for children.

To further SOS Children’s Villages mission, the Hilton Prize Coalition has provided resources to staff six Fellows placements at SOS Children’s Villages.

Here are the Fellows who have made an impact at SOS Children’s Villages and beyond.
