I got this invite and info on SOS Children’s Village and I’m helping to spread the word about this great cause. They will be hosting an event on August 23, 6PM in SOS Batangas to recognize SOS mothers who have dedicated their lives to taking care of children and loving them as their own.
On August 28 in SOS Bataan, the newest and the first community integrated orphan center will be inaugurated.
On both occasions, Dr. Helmut Kutin, SOS International President, who himself was an orphan at 5 and grew up in SOS, will be there and is open for interviews.
