Sponsor a child in Namibia

Our children's charity in Namibia since 1984

Many vulnerable children and young people who have lost parental care are supported by Namibia's SOS Children's Villages. Our organisation helps them to grow up in a caring family environment. Since the war in neighbouring Angola caused mass-immigration into Namibia, the presence of our organisation in Namibia has become even more necessary.
