Dear friends, Christmas 2015

New blood school.

Approximately 200 boarding children of the New blood school were so happy to have a nice meal for such a special day as Christmas.

About 400 other children from the same school went home for a vacation together with their families. So we thought, what can we do to give also a christmas feeling to these children as well as for ourselves…………… Ok shopping, cooking and a nice diner for 200 kids and staff.

And ……please note that all together we spent was for the same money as an average christmas diner in Holland for maybe 8 people. (200 euro) (Thank you donors for your donations)

Then to supermarket TESCO in Maesot for 200 christmas hats and wait for later afternoon and started with the supply of hats.

After shopping about 40 children and staff started to work in the kitchen. And around 17.30 we could start with lightning of the candles and providing the food. One by one with a plate with three sections for the food at one time on the same plate. The children were happy and also we had a good feeling of celebrating christmas with all these children together.

Attached to this article a few more pictures:
