A special village for orphans, abandoned children and those of unknown parentage is being built in Umm Al Qaiwain in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the lines of the world famous SOS Children’s Villages. The ministry of social affairs said the village, officially named “The Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan Social Care Village”, is being constructed and funded by the Khalifa bin Zayed Humanitarian
Foundation. The village aims to meet the psychological, spiritual, mental and social needs of children who are deprived of families, the ministry said. Children of unknown parentage will be provided with foster families and integrated into the community. The project to help
up to 300 children is made up of a cluster of high quality residences, each of which can accommodate up to six children each.
