Message from Nonkie (Home of Hope) with regards to the donated groceries made to support their holiday programme during December: Dear JP, Renate and Mommy (Rene Kairuz) I also would like to take this opportunity to thank you individually and as SOSA for your continued generosity and kindness that you have displayed to Home of Hope Community Centre. It has been truly an awesome year for us as an organisation and you are a big part of our success.
Only 10 days to go to support 200 children with a great Christmas lunch and gifts :)!
Christmas preperations continue with the gifts for Oasis Haven children and staff. There are 12x Christmas cakes for the wonderful staff plus 18x gifts for the children (10 girls and 8 boys). Oasis Haven care for abandoned children, place them in families and equip others to do the same. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas :) SOSA Support team
We have a small foundation here in Haarlem called SOSA: Support Orphans in Southern Africa. For the second year, we are joining Out of Africa Children's Foundation to arrange a Christmas lunch for 200 children in Cape Town. Lunch, food and drinks have been sponsored but 200 Santa goodie bags filled with school items and a small gift are needed to give the children something special this Christmas. Every euro is used for the children, and only for the children. We are transparant!
Join us in raising funds to purchase 100 Christmas in July gifts for orphans in Southern Africa. Online donations welcome through below link:
