A proud South African (JP Skinner) and his Dutch wife (Renate Vink) have been collecting donations and second hand clothing in Haarlem for orphans in Southern Africa since 2006.
We have registered a Foundation in the Netherlands named Stichting SOSA (Support Orphans in Southern Africa).
There are many children in Southern Africa that have lost parents due to HIV/Aids. The orphanages and organisations that give these children a home need as much support as possible.
