malnutrition. Most were eventually reunified with their families however some
of the children had no living relatives, or, their parent/s and/or living
relatives were unable to care for them due to child protection issues.

of Lebanon, where vulnerable Lebanese children without parental care are being
raised in loving, caring SOS-families. SOS Children’s Villages has now
successfully integrated 28 Syrian refugee children, who had no other family,
into family houses in the Sferai village. Some of the children are biological
siblings and it was important that they stay together, a key pillar that the
SOS care model upholds globally. Here, they are being raised as part of a
community alongside vulnerable Lebanese children without parental care.
