Solemen will be the perfect choice [for volunteering]. For me they do a marvelous job, Robert Epstone and Sarah Chapman you should check on them. They do something real!

Not all charity organizations can be trusted but Solemen has a good name. I like the fact that you support different people in need and not just kids or animals. There are so many people that need help and care and I’m happy I found a reliable organization that I can support.

The press is only reinforcing what we already know – Solemen Indonesia, you rock! :D

Your extraordinary commitment to raising awareness to help the poor and homeless children in Indonesia is a perfect example of how a few men and women can make a tremendous impact on peoples’s lives.
That’s the awesomeness of your projects Robert – it’s never about a life of self-perpetuating charitable help – you have the insight to give the most apporiate ‘fishing rod’ to develop a life of self-respect, dignity, self-sufficiency and the ability to help their own too.
