In an SOS Children’s Village in Haiti, one year after the earthquake, a boy named Eribic plays football. He lost his mother in the catastrophe and was found wandering the streets of Port-au-Prince alone.
Many Haitian children just like Eribic lost everything – their home, friends, and families. But, one year later, Eribic and many other Haitian children have since found loving homes at SOS Children’s Villages.
“We give him affection,” Eribic’s SOS Mother says, “Affection is what we give him the most.”
Eribic’s story is one of many. Shortly after the earthquake, the number of children at the SOS Children’s Village in Santo, outside of Port-au-Prince, skyrocketed from 152 to 512. But, with help from SOS Supporters, SOS Children’s Villages was able to build small, prefabricated houses within our Santo Village to shelter a great number of children who had nowhere else to go.
SOS Children’s Villages cares for children in Haiti and around the world. You can help us help them. Join the Global Village Builder movement today or visit www.sos-usa.org/haiti to learn more about SOS Children’s Villages.
