Now that George Soros is 92 years old, he is passing control of his global operation to his son Alex Soros, who is reportedly more radical than he is.
Known for his ultra-liberal causes, 37-year-old Alex Soros has vowed to further broaden his father’s wide-ranging woke interests to include voting and abortion rights, and gender equality.
George Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF) is closing a considerable number of its international offices and laying off over 40% of its staff.
The Gateway Pundit reported in June this year that the organization was preparing to cut its staff by up to 40 percent.
According to internal emails seen by Bloomberg, the foundation’s African operations will shutter half a dozen offices on the continent. Additionally, it was revealed that the Baltimore and Barcelona locations will also be closing down.
This comes after Inside Philanthropy reported that OSF had removed more than a dozen offices in Africa and Asia from its website. This shake-up is particularly significant considering that OSF’s alleged charitable activities have been used for promoting left-wing political agendas around the world.
George Soros’s network of foundations, boasting a massive $25 billion in assets, has been a powerhouse for years, funding for evil causes.
However, the latest internal correspondence suggests a dramatic pivot. Binaifer Nowrojee, OSF’s vice president of programs, stated that due to the board’s decision to cut staff by more than 40%, the foundation’s “staffing size and footprint by necessity needs to diminish.”
The cutbacks are substantial and affect critical locations, including Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; Kampala, Uganda; Cape Town, South Africa; Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo; Abuja, Nigeria; and Freetown, Sierra Leone.
Offices in Nairobi, Kenya; Dakar, Senegal; and Johannesburg, South Africa, will remain operational.

An OSF spokesperson declined to comment on specific numbers until labor “negotiations are completed.”
The charity, which operates on five continents, will also use a new “opportunity” model of operations, though which opportunities they’ll focus on is unclear. Employees affected by the cuts in Africa are invited to apply to roles “within their jurisdiction,” according to the email from Nowrojee. “You would be expected to move and would also be responsible for your own relocation,” Wanyeki wrote.
In August, OSF sent grantees a note saying it “will largely terminate funding within the European Union, and further funding will be extremely limited.”
At a conference in Austria later that month, Alex Soros challenged reports that this represented a scaling back of the nonprofit’s work on the continent.
“It’s news to me that OSF is leaving Europe,” he said. “It was reported in various outlets that that’s the case but we’re simply changing our strategy.”
