You have worked wonders

With your help, many families with children received food and gifts for their children.


Each visit to the homes brought much joy. The families are grateful for the miracle they experienced.

My dear friends,
warmest greetings from my family!
I wish you all a happy New Year and Christmas. May you experience consolation, sincere love, peace, a long life, health and well-being.
Dear friends, with tears in my eyes I thank you for your understanding and support over the years – you have not forgotten us. I love you dearly. May God bless and keep you.

Our Christmas food campaign consisted of three phases. Part of the families came shopping with us. Some could not come, so we bought the groceries and took them to homes.


The campaign took three days during which we had the privilege of bringing much joy to children.

We also had a party in Friend’s House. The children greeted our guests with Christmas carols, and then we had a festive meal. Everything tasted so good! Surely there were gifts, too?

Each and every child had sweets and a small gift for Christmas.
