Santa is in Town

During these festive seasons, we wanted to put a smile on faces of 45 children, who were longing for some hope during these difficult times. Their parents are trying day and night just to make sure that they can put one meal a day on the table. Buying what their child wants for Christmas and seeing that smile is every parent’s dream. Our team of volunteers were able to make this dream come true for these children whose family’s income is affected due to COVID. The total cost for this initiative was Rs. 80000 ($439.00)
