SOS Africa Thank You Page

The SOS Africa Charity's grass roots approach to charitable fundraising and commitment to invest 100% of all donations in the education and care of the SOS Africa children means that we are extremely reliant upon on the generosity and goodwill of philanthropic individuals, groups and businesses from across the globe. Since 2003, the incredible support we have received has enabled us grow and broaden the scope of invaluable support we have provided to Africa’s future generations. This “Thank You Page” is dedicated to the many generous fundraisers and charity sponsors who continue to empower our organisation and the wonderful children in our care…
