Kicking off his involvement, he visited his first village in Cape Town, South Africa. Through his career, he will raise awareness all around the world for SOS Children’s villages, with a focus on preventing family separation and providing family-based care for vulnerable children.
He visited his first village in Cape Town, where he witnessed first-hand the impact that the organization makes on children who have lost or are at risk of losing parental care. At this village, SOS families are created for children who have lost parental care. In such a family, children grow up with an SOS mother, sisters and brothers. To introduce himself, Garrix played a short DJ set for all SOS families.
Martin Garrix Uses His Voice To Encourage His Followers To Get Involved
It is wonderful to see how SOS Children’s Villages creates a family for children worldwide. I know how important family is. I hope that, with my support, SOS can help many more children.
My sister and I grew up with caring parents. We are still very close. I truly believe that they are a big part of my success. Especially since I was only still a kid when my career took off. They were always there. Their unconditional support helped me more than I can say. It is awful that so many children around the world don’t have the support of a caring family.
As a friend of SOS, I want to help children and get more people involved.
