Umthombo Street Children

In 2006, I saw Tom Hewitt present his story about how he worked with street children in South Africa. I was very impressed with his efforts and volunteered to build a website to help promote Umthombo. The Umthombo site attracted much positive attention and helped secure significant funding. In January 2011, Tom was awarded an MBE by Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II for his services to street children in Africa. In 2012 Tom founded Surfers not Street Children in Durban, South Africa and in 2015 founded Freedom Tree UK to support his work with street children.

See a video of Tom and Surfers not Street Children on the British Airways YouTube Chanel.
