Kids Christmas Party

and Gifts Programme

The Christmas season is fast approaching and we always love to give you the opportunity to give a gift to less privileged children. A year ago, no one would expect the world to change so drastically. We're facing a Christmas like never before - a Christmas with face masks and restricted access to friends and family.

 

While Christmas is the season of the year where families and friends come together and share love, rejoice, eat together, give each other gifts, have fun and feel at home. But for so many children, families, and individuals in the communities where we operate, and those who rely on the help of Youth With A Vision, Christmas is a time of struggle and hardship, and it is always the same like on the other days of the year. No rice, no meat, no soda, no gift to open. Instead, they just smell meat and chicken from their financially stable neighbours. And on Boxing Day they will flood garbage bins to pick meat that was thrown from the remaining of Christmas. They will also fight for empty boxes that contained gifts that were donated among families and friends.

Thanks to the generosity of friends like you, every year we organize a Christmas party for the less privileged children including those sponsored and not sponsored, and we provide them with a special Christmas meal and small gifts to open on Boxing Day. During the party, children act a play about the birth of Jesus, have fun, feast and experience the love of those who have sponsored their meal and gifts. 

 

For this year's Christmas, we won't bring children together for a party due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, we will distribute door to door food and gift Parcels to homes where the children stay.
