2000 to Now

I wish to donate to FOMO’s work to help the children Click Here

Last updated April 2022

With just 20 children and a donation of £100 ($150) in the year 2000, FOMO has grown with your continued help to over 2,500 children, (Peeking at 6000 in 2009).

We, and that includes the many volunteers and donors, have achieved a great deal and made a difference to thousands of children, but we need to keep it going and expand to meet the needs of the children we have not yet touched.

Our work depends on your donations
