- We could not imagine how difficult the conditions are for the children who come to the Hungarian SOS Children’s villages. It is no wonder that the children who live in a SOS Children’s Village suffer from psychological problems, are very vulnerable, not stabile and especially sensitive to stress, because they have either been assaulted, experienced extremely bad social conditions or survived traumatic situations, says Krisztina Mina, associate at the center of SOS Children’s Villages in Budapest. The Hungarian foundation of the SOS Children’s Village pays special attention to the development of the children’s individual capabilities with the help of psychologists and teachers.

- We thank Skanska Property Hungary Ltd. for its donations. Our goal is to help the children, who have a prejudicial social and psychological background, make progress in overcoming their problems both mentally and physically with a stabile future in mind, says Krisztina Mina.
