Your Donation Matters!

Every day, children of every age become orphaned or abandoned due to violence, natural disasters, poverty or disease. Your donation helps vulnerable children, providing them with:

  1. A secure home
  2. Care and saftey
  3. Education
  4. Healthcare
  5. Emergency relief help in crisis


In 2016, we transformed the lives of 80,000 children in our care. Children like five-year-old Sebele who was scared and alone before we gave her a loving home.

We also reached more than 450,000 children and their families through our community outreach work. None of this would have been possible without people like you.

Make a donation and change the life of children like Sebele now.

Sponsoring a child can support the future of one of the thousands of children living in an SOS Children’s Village. You can give regularly, or as a one-off payment by sponsoring a child for their whole childhood.

To do this you need to make a one-off gift of £5,000. This will pay for a sponsorship for a child until she or he is grown up and independent. Plus £10 on every birthday will go into a savings account for your sponsored child.

There is flexibility in amount and duration where required. We will arrange for you to receive all the usual sponsorship communications for your child including a photograph and regular updates.

If this is something you’re interested in, we’d love to hear from you. Give us a call on +44 (0)1223 365589 or email us and one of the team will be happy to help.

Note about childhood sponsorship : Occasionally children do leave our sponsorship programs for a variety of reasons. Should the child reach independence or leave our sponsorship programme before the sponsorship has finished, we will use the remaining funds as a village sponsorship for other projects at that location, and you or your nominee will get sponsorship information for the location.


“We have seen first-hand the remarkable job SOS does to raise orphaned and abandoned children and keep families together. The SOS model of providing care for children without parental care is one of the best, as they are still in a family setting within their own country.”
