KFC Add Hope supports SOS Children’s Villages





Ten years ago, KFC launched Add Hope – a campaign to help feed many of South Africa’s hungry and malnourished children. SOS Children’s Villages has been a beneficiary of the campaign since its inception.

KFC Add Hope helps SOS Children’s Villages with our national food budget across 11 SOS Children’s Villages programmes. This partnership means that we can provide daily meals for children in our programmes, and food parcels to families with dependent children, who face a significant risk of losing parental care and are living in challenging conditions.

Every time a customer “Adds Hope” with a R2 donation at the local KFC store, a child is given the chance for a healthier life, through good nutrition.

At SOS, we have many stories of how children come into our care, neglected and malnourished. Growing up in abject poverty, without the loving care of a parent/caregiver deeply scars a child. And a child suffers even more when they don’t know when they will have their next meal.

SOS Children’s Villages South Africa is thankful to KFC for this initiative, and especially to the thousands of South Africans who choose to Add Hope every day with their R2 donation – to help feed our children, and ease their hunger and suffering.
