Thank You for Giving Joy in Uganda!

The Christmas photos from Uganda are in! And thanks to all of you, the children had a great time celebrating Jesus' birth. Please enjoy these photos and this special message from our Village Partnership Program Coordinator in Uganda, Christopher Odongo:

God is good! The children in Uganda had a colorful Christmas celebration this year, with a wonderful meal, drinks, and great gifts, including school bags and books. 

Thank You for Giving Joy in Malawi!

Thank you for making this Christmas a special one for the children in Malawi! The children in our Village Partnership Program and in our Children’s Homes had a lot of fun activities and great gifts this Christmas, thanks to you. 

Thank You for Giving Joy in Haiti!

This Christmas was a great one for the children we serve in Haiti.

Every single child in the Bellevue Village Partnership and in the Family Care Program (the first small group of children you supported after the 2010 earthquake) got to eat a special meal and receive a Christmas gift, thanks to their sponsors. The festivities also included the singing of Christmas songs, acting out of nativity skits, readings of poetry, and dancing. 

Thank you for making this Christmas so special for the children! Enjoy the photos! 

Thank You for Giving Joy in Sierra Leone!

Thank you for giving joy to the children in Sierra Leone this Christmas! 

Thanks to the generous gifts from you and other sponsors, the children in our Children's Homes and Village Partnership Program were able to enjoy a big Christmas meal, presents (including a book for every child!), dancing, singing, games, and a nativity play. And to top it all off, they spent time praying for you, their sponsors! 

As Mabinty, one of the girls in the Children's Homes, said, "This is the best Christmas ever." Thank you for bringing that joy to her and the rest of the children.

Thank You for Everything!

The children have something to tell you.
