Make a Charity Donation to SOS Children

You can help the many children who have no parents to care for them. They may have been orphaned by AIDS, poverty, disasters or war. We give children a family and a home in one of our children's villages. Our charity also works where family life is under threat to keep children with their own parents.

There are several ways to donate:

SOS boys

Sponsor a Child

The best way to give is to sponsor a child. 100% of your donation will go towards the care of children. You can sponsor from only £20 a month (67p a day). Regular sponsorship money is essential for the long term commitments we have to children.
