Christmas in the Central African Republic 2012

Central African Republic Central African Republic

Children in the Central African Republic (CAR) have been forced to face tremendous obstacles in their lives. Living amid severe poverty in a country that has been devastated by HIV/AIDS, sponsorship at Irene’s Home of Hope is a safe refuge for 10 of these children. Here, they receive basic necessities and the nurturing care they desperately need..

Through our Christmas funds, each child at the home received their very own Christmas gift! For some of these children, it was the first time they received a gift. They were filled with great excitement as they opened their presents and examined the brand new toys in their hands. Some had plastic airplanes, while others received a new doll to play with. Whatever the gift, smiles remained on their faces throughout the entire day.

In addition, both the boys and girls received a new outfit. They were so happy and enjoyed taking this photo together dressed in their colorful clothing!

The children also enjoyed a delicious Christmas feast with some of their favorite delicacies, including chicken, rice, and a medley of vegetables. However, their favorite part of the meal was the bottles of soda they received. For these children, this flavored drink is a rare treat that brought joy and excitement to each child’s face!

Spending the holiday eating a delicious meal, playing games, and opening gifts made this Christmas unforgettable! Thank you for playing such an integral part through your participation in our 2012 Child Sponsorship Christmas Campaign.

Because of your involvement, these children felt your love and care from across the world knowing their sponsors had provided these special Christmas gifts. Your investment through sponsorship is truly making an eternal impact for these children as you are providing help for today and hope for tomorrow.

Please continue to pray for all of our sponsored children in the CAR as they grow and develop both physically and spiritually.
