World Orphan Week Introduced to SA

Every 2.2 seconds a child loses a parent due to war, poverty, natural disaster, disease, HIV/AIDS and other such causes. This is according to SOS Children’s Village South Africa’s Leigh Swartz.

Swartz says in response to these statistics, SOS Children’s Villages has introduced the annual World Orphan Week (WOW) to South Africa to promote awareness about orphans and their plight.

“WOW is celebrated annually across five countries and we’re excited to introduce the concept of dressing up in something ‘wow’ to raise money for the children of South Africa. We’re expecting South Africans to embrace the concept as a unique way to raise funds while having lots of fun doing it,” explains Swartz.
