Helping with orphan rescue at the Poland/Ukraine border

S.O.N.G. has teamed up with Aerial Recovery Group to assist with the safe evacuation of orphaned children in Ukraine. Our Executive Director, Wally Connor, will be traveling with nine other volunteers to the Poland-Ukraine border to work on the Logistics Team that assists and supports the Rescue Team. This group has been carrying out the orphan rescue missions inside Ukraine, as well as, processing the safe passage of orphaned and unaccompanied children into safe havens. Many orphaned and unaccompanied children have fallen victim to traffickers at the border that promised them safety and security.

S.O.N.G. has initiated a special and immediate fundraising drive “S.O.S. Ukraine” (SONG ORPHAN SUPPORT Ukraine) to provide direct support to orphaned children as needed upon S.O.N.G.’s arrival at the border. We are asking that you consider supporting this critical and important Mission at this time. Thank you!

Chosen Children Village

Baquio, Philippines

Chosen Children Village

Sunday, January 12, 2020, the Philippines Taal Volcano began spewing ash and lava covering the Chosen Children Village, a haven for abandoned children with physical & mental disabilities. This resulted in covering the facility grounds with ash, causing their water source to be contaminated, their vegetable gardens (a major supply of healthy food for the children) ruined, and electricity cut off.

S.O.N.G. learned of this news from a local woman here who had adopted a child from this orphanage. We immediately provided relief by funding clean drinking water, food, and medical supplies. Due to the significant threat of further eruptions, the children and staff were forced to evacuate and were brought to a retreat house in Baguio City.

Oct 26, 2019 – Concert for the Orphans of St. Joseph’s

On Saturday, October 26, 2019, at historic Mechanics Hall in Worcester, Massachusetts, Supporting Orphans Nationally & Globally, Inc. presented “Concert for the Orphans of St. Joseph’s” an evening of fantastic music, dining, and dancing to benefit the orphaned children living at St. Joseph’s Orphanage that we support. This event featured New England favorites “Mitch Chakour & his All-Star Band,” blues legend “The James Montgomery Band” with special guest John Cafferty from The Beaver Brown Band, as well as Shrewsbury native singer/songwriter, Cara Brindisi.

It was a fantastic evening and we are looking forward to doing another concert next year! Click here to check out some of the photos from the evening.
