Changing a child's life forever is a team effort. Your support means a lot to every child. Give a child another chance to have a family.
Every day children and young people lose their home - and with it their childhood. With your donation, SOS Children's Villages helps children and families in need. Because a happy childhood helps for a lifetime.
As the sponsor of an SOS Children's Village, you help support the loving care, health, education and supportive community life of children who have been given a new home through SOS Children’s Villages. When we take a child into our care, they become part of an SOS family.

When you donate, you will receive a Section 18A tax certificate enabling you to claim a deduction from personal or corporate taxable income. Annual tax certificates will be issued at the end of the financial year unless requested earlier.
Tax-deductible donations (Section 18A receipts)
A taxpayer making a bona fide donation in cash or in kind to a section 18A-approved organisation is entitled to a deduction from taxable income if the donation is supported by the necessary Section 18A receipt issued by the organisation or, in certain circumstances, by an employee’s tax certificate reflecting the donations made by the employee. The amount of donations that may qualify for a tax deduction is limited.
Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com to request a copy of your annual tax certificate.
