Award winning photographer and SOS Ambassador Jens Honoré will discuss his long standing photographic work - which has led to several visits to SOS Children's Villages all over the world at the SOS & Friends 2017 exclusive event.
When a devastating earthquake hit Ecuador in April 2016, 7,000 buildings were destroyed. SOS Children's Villages started an emergency program to support families and children who had been affected, by setting up camp in the shelters and having social workers help children and their families in the area. On a recent visit Jens had the privilege of visiting the camps and working on the 2017 fundraiser campaign.
Jens Honoré has recently returned from Cambodia where he worked with the SOS Children's Villages and FSP (family strengthening programs) photographing the communities.
The FSP work is aimed at the poorest families where parents are unable to pay for basic necessities.
Such children are at a much greater risk of being abandoned.
By giving the children food and free education, SOS Children’s Villages are giving them a chance for a better life with improved living conditions.
