Family Matters Magazine

Welcome to the Summer 2019 edition of Family Matters – our bi-annual supporter magazine. Amongst the inspirational stories in this edition is that of three-year-old Marcia, who is one of 70 abandoned babies in the Ethiopian city of Jimma that have found a loving family thanks to an SOS initiative, and hardworking mum Lea, who with our support has escaped poverty and become a successful entrepreneur. You can also read how we are caring for Liberian children who lost their parents in the devastating 2014 Ebola outbreak, and discover how our work tackling poverty worldwide is protecting children from losing their families.

Without your generosity our work ensuring children can grow up in a stable environment where they feel loved, safe and supported would not be possible – so thank you for helping us to transform the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children.

   With your support, we are helping families in crisis around the world to escape poverty, stay together through the hard times, and offer their children a stable and happy childhood. Thank you for your generosity and for being there when children and their families need us most.
