Foundation details:

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.

IBAN NL48 INGB 0007360486
KvK number 55511953 (Chamber of Commerce)
ANBI reference 8517.45.258 (tax deductible in the Netherlands)

All board members and ambassadors work on a voluntary basis. No-one receives any salary for their support given to SOSA. 'For the children and only for the children'.
