“Christmas is all about giving.” We fully endorse the truth in this statement. Giving is an act of love. The joy of being able to bless and give someone you care, and to make them smile, is priceless. Although Christmas is a festivity for the entire family, children play an important role in it. Children do need special love and caring during Christmas, but there are few young ones who are not as fortunate as us, to enjoy the spirit of Christmas. And that is when our participation would be most appreciated. There also many less fortunate families who need help.
Hence, we, Partners-in-Mission, along with the school and college students took an opportunity to visit the prison, Juvenile Home and slum area. We entertained them with a Christmas Skit, dance and carol singing. We also shared our joy of Christmas by distributing cakes and some toiletries, which our students themselves donated. We are happy that our gestures brought them much joy. A total of 300 persons benefited.
