Amid chaotic scenes we gave out presents to the children and were warmly thanked by their parents, most of whom are fleeing the voilence in the Middle East or the harsh conditions on East Africa. Some of the teenagers had no parents and found themselves in a foriegn country with no family connections and and very little outside help except that provided by a few small organisations who work on their behalf. The kids were all delighted with their presents and despite the huge clash of cultures in the room we were able to see and feel how grateful the children and parents were for these gifts
This will be our last regular blog entry for tis year's trip. We will add some more bits and pieces and perhaps show you some behind the scenes type stuff if we can get our act together enough to sort it. We hope that through these videos, pictures and words you have been able to get a feel of what it is like to spend two weeks being Santa for real. The whole Trussell Trust/FSCI team would like to thank all our wonderful donors and volunteers for their generosity of time, money and Christmas boxes- we are truly priviledged to be in the position to see what affects your efforts have on the chlidren and families who receive these boxes and we hope that you and yours have a blessed Christmas and a happy New Year.
