I thought that since I have been away to spend time with family, albeit short, I would write a little entry about SOS children Villages.
I have been sponsoring little Graca who is now 18 months in Mozambique and contributing to the Haiti Emergency Relief Service. Especially in times like this of economic recession charitable organisations probably suffer the most.
SOS children's Villages is actually the largest orphan and abandon children charity in the world. The difference from other children charities is that all the money donated actually goes to the child in full rather than pay campaign advertisement costs like others do. You probably won't find them on TV ads or newspapers and yet the Dalai Lama himself has said they were a charity where deeds speak louder than words.
This is the link if anyone is interested: SOS children
