What happens when you take a Canadian mother to Namibia… where she has to be a mother to a family of orphaned and abandoned children? SOS Children’s Villages Canada sent singer, songwriter and mom (and my client) Amanda Martinez to find out!
Through their Children’s Villages, SOS offers orphaned and abandoned children a family and a loving home with a mother to care and support them in a safe environment where their needs for food, health and shelter are met. SOS Children’s Villages also keeps families together through skills training and community development to ensure self sufficiency and prevent child abandonment. Since 1949, SOS Children’s Villages has been guided by a basic principle: a loving home for every child. They are the largest charity working with orphaned and abandoned children.
SOS Children’s Villages Canada’s Mother’s Day themed site features a video of Amanda’s experience in their Namibian village as the temporary mom of eight kids! They also give you the opportunity to send free e-cards to your mothers and/or to gift them with a donation to SOS this Mother’s Day.
