SOS Children’s Villages Bangladesh celebrates UN Family Day!

Home is where the heart is. And for every child, a home is a place where there is comfort, protection and warmth, and love and care of a family. We all remember days when our dads would carry us out on their shoulders for an ice-cream, when we fought with our brothers and sisters over something, or when our mothers would be awake all night for us when we were sick. These are the precious moments that make a family. And every child deserves to experience these moments in life.

On the occasion of UN International Day of Families on May 15, the SOS Children’s Villages Bangladesh is happy to launch its Moments Make Families (MMF) campaign. As a part of this campaign, we want all of us to share the happy memories of our childhood, the small moments spent together that seemed mundane at the time, but are the most important part of growing up.

According to UNICEF estimates, more than 163 million children live without parental care. In Bangladesh, the figure is about 4.9 million.  They do not have a warm bed to sleep or a mother who makes sure they are properly fed. At SOS Children’s Villages we believe that children can only develop to their full potential if they have a supportive and protective family environment.  We work to make this a reality. In the family-based care of SOS Children’s Villages children live in a home with their mother and siblings and are part of a community. Like us, they experience the family moments together. They are safe and know that at the end of the day, they have a home to go to.

SOS Children’s Villages firmly believes that home is a place where children feel valued, safe, listened to and understood – where there is someone they can count on and who can help them navigate the world till they become independent. As a part of our campaign we have planned a discussion and reminiscence sessions and get together programme in our SOS Children’s Villages in Dhaka, Rajshahi, Khulna, Chittagong, Bogra and Sylhet.

You can be a part of this campaign by sharing your own childhood experiences and family moments and by spreading the word around on the importance of families for children in need. So here’s wishing you all a very happy International Families Day, with our promise to endeavor to make this day special for more and more children around the world.
