THANK YOU to everyone who gave towards this project. The children absolutely loved their gifts and had such a great time at their Christmas party. 

 

ZAMBIA Box of Hope 2015

Their first Box of Home Christmas Party complete with party hats, balloons and all the trimmings, popcorn, sodas, food and gifts! The girls were very excited about their dolls and we even saw many small and big boys play with them. But then, the boys also shared their cars with the girls. The kids also received new clothes, toiletries and watches. Just before we left I asked Emmanuel what he thinks I should bring them next Christmas. He immediately replied " Chicken, rice and potatoes." It touched my heart to think what this little boy wanted the most, was a very basic meal! John joined in the conversation and this was the wish list they eventually, after some hard thinking, came up with: backpacks for school, raincoats so that they can walk to school when it's raining, clothes and games. It struck me—what would be on our needs list , is on their wish list!
