SOS Children's Villages UK
Based in Cambridge, SOS Children’s Villages UK is a branch of the SOS Children’s Villages international federation, the world's largest charity working with orphaned and abandoned children. We work towards every child growing up in a loving family home, whether it is with the child’s biological family or a new SOS family, so that they flourish and reach their full potential.

Because of rural-urban migration, an expanding population has led to an increase in poverty and HIV infections. As a result, there is a particularly high rate of family breakdown and child abandonment in the town.
