SOS Children’s Village in Kecskemét

The SOS Children’s Village in Kecskemét has been part of the international network since 1990. The mission of the village leaders is to create a home for children who are forced to grow up without their family. The current 72,000 young girls and boys who have found new and caring parents in 300 countries bear testimony to the success of the system.

The new Sika house as home for 12 young people

When Sika Hungária heard in January 2014 that a new home was being built for the residents of the SOS Children’s Village in Helvécia and offered to supply building materials, the leader of the Children’s Village was delighted. The house has become a home to 12 young people under the continuous supervision of six educators. Sika Hungary donated SikaCeram® tile adhesives and Sikalastic® waterproofing mortars .

SOS Children’s Villages works in 133 countries to support families and help children at risk grow up in a loving home. In a world filled with poverty, violence, and injustice, the greatest victims are often children. For more than 60 years, SOS Children’s Villages has worked with partners in each community to either help families care for their children or to provide an alternative, for instance an SOS family, where the love of a career is essential.
