2012 has been a difficult year for so many, but even in this harsh economic climate, it always amazes me just how generous World Vision’s supporters are. Even though times are tough and there is little if anything left over after the bills are paid, you still go out of your way to send what you can to children and communities in Africa.
Your support has given so many access to clean water, provided school buildings where children can learn, sent livestock to support families and bought seeds to feed communities. These things have changed so many lives for the better but what you have also given that is not material, but is just as important, is hope. Because of the hope that your support has brought to the communities where we work more children now believe that they can become something, that they can have a full and happy life. The fact that people here in Ireland care makes a huge difference to the spirit of the people we support. And that is what the spirit of Christmas is all about.
I wish you a very, very happy Christmas and a wonderful new year.
Thank you so much for your support.
