Christmas is a very special time: children feel even more the absence of roots and families. We try to bring a festive and joyful spirit trough this period and we offer a gift to each and every child of the foundation.
In France, in Singapore, in Switzerland, in UK and in United States, volunteers are organising symbolic actions in favour of Manila’s children. For several years now, there are various Christmas sales in London, Lausanne, Versailles, Bordeaux. Last year New Year’s Eve, volunteers invited their friends to support ANAK-Tnk placing a donation box under their Christmas tree.
In Manila, for several children living at the foundation it will be their first time celebrating this great annual Day with joy and simplicity. The Christmas party of “Street children program” will take place on December 17 in Quezon City, and then each centre will celebrate Christmas on December 25th.
Christmas season often appeals to generosity but this generosity must not just be “a way to ease our consciences”. This year let’s give a true meaning to Christmas and be generous with those who need love and attention above all.
