I’ve seen it expressed in ways that I’ll never forget in the developing world. I saw tiny Syrian children holding each other’s hands as they walked through refugee camps, taking care of each other and laughing with each other. I saw young boys in refugee camps in Jordan who seemed to forget all their troubles when they started playing football. I saw young children dressed in bright colours attending their first days of school in the refugee camps, hungry for knowledge and eager to learn. I’ve seen children in child-friendly spaces in South Sudan where they had the opportunity to forget all their problems, to forget the trauma they experienced from violence, malnutrition, disease and conflict- children who had the chance to just be children again! I’ve seen children in Uganda getting life-saving medicine and mothers whose faces lit up when they knew their children wouldn’t die from preventative diseases following vaccination.
I saw first-hand how donations from people like you are giving people dignity. They give people hope. Donations of €20, €50, €100, €500, whatever you can spare, translates directly into dignity. That’s the best value for money you can possibly get. How amazing is that? To have the power to give people back their dignity at Christmas. What a kind and wonderful gesture!
I want to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your donations to date and for the life-transforming difference it makes to children, mothers, families and communities who need it most.
Thank you very much, wishing you and yours a most wonderful Christmas!
