What will these children receive for Christmas?

November 20, 2009

"Dear Sponsors in the USA,

We are very thankful for your help these many years for homeless children in Ukraine. Praise God, we are now caring for 1200 children in 20 homes. Every Christmas we have been able to provide these dear children with a Christmas gift to celebrate the birth of our Saviour, and to give these children a happy remembrance on Christmas Day. This year, however, many of our supporters have lost their jobs and we don´t have enough funds to purchase Christmas gifts as usual. But if we received a special offering, we could give every child a gift bag with candies for approximately $3.70 each.

For many of these children this may be the first Christmas they have ever experienced in a loving home. This small offering is not just a material thing that will eventually fall apart or be tossed aside. It will be a demonstration of Christ´s love working through us, the body of Christ. And it will be a happy memory, hopefully crowding out some of the bad ones."

Christian Aid also thanks you for the support you have given this ministry over the years. We praise our Lord for the work He is doing in the lives of these children.

We wish you all a blessed Christmas and fruitful New Year!"
