In Hungary, five thousand children are placed in state care every year. In the SOS Children’s Villages campaign, young adults who have grown up in the system are sending messages to children living in children’s homes. These video messages contain advice for children to help get them through this difficult period. In this article, you can see messages from Mariann, Flora, and Heni. Léna Szilvási, the professional director of SOS Children’s Villages, says that children who enter the child protection system are traumatized, and that SOS Children’s Villages works with a full team of specialists to provide children with appropriate support. The SOS Children’s Village is also constantly looking for foster parents to take care of children.
