Christmas Celebrations for 3,200 Kids

Celebrations

World’s Children provided Christmas celebrations for 3,200 children last December. All of the children live in orphanages in India, Ethiopia and Guatemala. Each year World’s Children collects funds for Christmas throughout the year and then wires 100% of the Christmas money it has collected to each of 29 orphanages, with a combined 3,200 kids.

Every child gets one gift, typically a new article of clothing, and a Christmas feast is cooked. Christmas dinner in the India orphanages doesn’t include turkey or ham, as it would in the U.S., but is comprised of rice and a special curry sauce.
