A Disaster Relief Organization That Cares


Support a disaster relief organization that's making a big difference in the world. SSO helps people in Africa, the United States, and around the world by providing clothing, money, food, and supplies. From digging wells in Senegal to helping residents rebuild after hurricanes, we're there for people in need.

Our founder, Lynette Melbourne, started the organization in 2002 after discovering the impact that small donations make. She gave her sister $20 to distribute on a trip to Senegal, and soon Lynette received a letter of thanks from all the people her donation had helped. She began giving larger amounts whenever she could afford it, knowing that she was doing God's work, and eventually she went to Senegal with her family to dig wells by hand. Soon, her friends noticed the difference she was making and were inspired to start donating.

SSO gives people all over the United States the chance to make an impact. We seek donations of money and supplies to help provide essentials to communities that need them. From our home base in Humble, Texas, we send these supplies wherever they are needed.

Children Eating

Help us feed our orphans in Uganda by donation to our meal project. One of the greatest problems in the world today is hunger. While many of us enjoy the pleasures of cooking satisfying meals at home as well as dining out, there are millions of people—many of them children—in Africa , Uganda and around the world that do not get enough to eat. The good thing is that this problem is fixable by getting involved locally and donating now.

Houston FoodBank Food Bank

We are Salma Sadaqah Organization. We are based in Texas and help anywhere around the world. We send out flyers and spread the word about the growing need for food donations. We gather non-perishable foods and send them to the food bank in Houston Texas to those families that need them the most. We ask for your help in assisting low-income families that are affected the most by this pandemic. Yes, we are here at the Houston Food Bank delivering food donations for the families that were affected by the shutdown due to COVID-19.

1st Village Distribution Village Distribution

100 bags of millet flour was distributed in 2 villages just from monthly donations. You cannot imagine how these donations accumulate and benefit a large number of people. This flour is a basic need for them and it replaces any meal when there is no food to eat. It does make a difference in how much monthly you give as it serves more families yet it will still be helpful to send any amount. Visit our webpage and do your monthly automatic gift to help the poor around the world.

Last week during our visit to Uganda, Africa, we were very sad to see the bad situation these kids are in. This very short video shows their clothing and their bare feet. But what you don't see is that none of these kids are in underwear. That's why we decided to open donations to our Undies Project and start collecting money to buy underwear for them. We will later work on another project for clothing but we felt this is a matter that cannot be ignored for sanitary and health reasons. We would like for you to help us in our Undies Project by sending your gifts to salmasadaqah.
