Christmas came to YWAM Mercy’s community-based Children’s Homes with fun and celebration despite the challenges COVID brought in 2020.
HIF’s Hanoi City Partners helped us coordinate collection of 50 shoebox gifts, one for each child in our three Homes.
Although children from all three Homes could not come together for a joint Christmas party this year, each Home held a separate party and the children enjoyed games, treats and the shoebox-gifts from sponsors & donors. The parties were filled with joy, smiles, and a message of hope for brighter days ahead. The shoeboxes contained gifts like toys, school supplies and hygiene items.
These children who have experienced so much difficulty in their young lives were able to experience the joy of Christmas because of the generosity of our donors.
I understand that these shoeboxes were packed with love and I can feel that we are loved and will never be forgotten. I wish all the sponsors a Happy New Year 2021 with lots of health, joy and luck. Thank you for always loving us!
