About

We believe every child matters.

SOS develops sustainable solutions to the problems that at-risk children face every day.

In response to the cries of children around the world, we call global communities to rally together around solutions that work.

Our History

In 2000, Dwayne and Leslie Weehunt founded SOS International.

Their vision: to respond and meet the needs of at-risk children in communities around the world. 

For decades, SOS has developed and implemented solutions that help secure and protect at-risk children.

We focus on four key areas that have the greatest potential for impacting children’s lives: food, water, rescue and community development.

Every Child Matters

We believe that every cry of an at-risk child is worthy of hearing and responding to.

The first five years of a child’s life form the foundation of their future. Meeting their basic needs during these vulnerable years improves their likelihood of reaching adulthood.

The SOS approach provides a pathway that secures their future and drastically improves their life prospects.
