3-Sjøersløpet has partnered with SOS-barnebyer Rogaland for this year’s race. Participants will have the option of contributing by paying a little more for on entry.
SOS-barnebyer is an international humanitarian organisation which works to provide children with a safe home.. SOS-barnebyer works with families, empowering them to take full responsibility for the upbringing and development of their children. In addition to working with vulnerable families, SOS-barnebyer takes responsibility for those children who don’t have any families of their own. Those who are completely alone can get a safe home with an SOS-family.SOS-barnebyer has more than 60 years’ experience working with children and helps regardless of nationality, culture and religion in 133 countries and territories all over the world.
By contributing a small amount you will help to finance a family house in the new SOS-barnebyen in Mwanza, Tanzania. Rogalandshuset will be one of 15 family houses in SOS-barnebyen which can accommodate 150 children. In addition, 450 children and their familes will get support through an SOS family programme. Tanzania has been hard hit by HIV and AIDS leaving behind millions of orphans.
We encourage all our runners to contribute and make doing the run even more meaningful.
