World Orphan Week 2014
World Orphan Week takes place each year to highlight the number of orphaned children growing up alone around the world, with nothing and no one to care for them.
The awareness and funds raised through World Orphan Week enable SOS Children (www.soschildrensvillages.org.uk) to change the lives of these vulnerable children and ensure they grow up with the love, care and security of a family.
World Orphan Week is on 3rd-9th March 2014, and is an opportunity for you to be part of this change. This year, we would like your help to raise vital funds for children in Chipata, Zambia.
There are so many ways that you can support World Orphan Week. From organising a fundraising event, to raising awareness. Last year, many of you helped us by running, rowing, walking, cycling and swimming - collectively undertaking the distance from the UK to Chipata. Whatever you decide to do, we'll support you as you undertake your World Orphan Week challenge.
