MA’s Legal status: SOS Children’s Villages (CV) Eswatini is an independent, non-governmental child welfare organization and affiliate member of SOS Children’s Villages International. Established in 1989, SOS CV Eswatini’s main objective is to support and provide quality childcare to children who have lost parental care and those at risk of losing parental care.
