Vietnam has long treasured its cooperation with SOS Children’s Villages International and backs the alternative family model of the organization.

The country’s localities have also paid attention to the non-governmental organization’s related projects, he added.

Since the Vietnamese Ministry of Labour, Invalids, and Social Affairs (MoLISA) and SOS Children’s Villages International signed a cooperation agreement on the development of SOS villages in Vietnam 32 years ago, there have been nearly 70 SOS village projects and programmes implemented in Vietnam.

The country is currently home to 1.4 million children living in extremely disadvantaged circumstances, with 157,000 classified as orphans and abandoned or homeless children, Dam shared.

The Deputy PM expressed his hope that through this visit, the SOS Children’s Villages International will continue to carry out more activities to help Vietnamese children in the years to come.

The guests spoke highly of the effective activities of SOS villages in Vietnam with the close coordination of the MoLISA and localities.

Vietnam is now one of the organization’s top five countries in terms of the numbers of projects and children receiving benefits out of the 135 countries and territories that have SOS villages, they said.

During their stay in Vietnam, along with working with related ministries and sectors, the delegation will make a fact-finding tour to several SOS villages, they stated, affirming to call for more support from international organisations and individuals.
