SOS Children's Village Chaimávida was built in 1972, and consists of eleven family houses, in which a total of 95 children can find a new, loving home. It also has a village director's house, a community centre with an administrative unit and function rooms for special events, a library, a chapel, eleven holiday huts for children from other SOS Children's Villages, and an SOS aunts' house (SOS Children’s Village mothers in training, who assist current SOS mothers in their everyday work, and stand in for them if they are ill or on holiday). The children go to nursery or school in the nearby Concepción.
