Sharing the Joy of Christmas Gift with 75 underprivileged children;

“Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, forgive the guilty, welcome the unwanted, care for the ill, love your enemies, and do unto others as you would have done unto you”- Steve Maraboli.

Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most. The Star of Bethlehem shines even today, it helps us to walk together on the right path of fraternity and of solidarity. The Christmas celebration at vimukti premises brought together one and all as brothers and sisters to spread the good news of peace, love and harmony. The Spirit of Christmas reminded everyone that we should not be blinded by hatred, violence, and injustice. The Christ-event was enacted through carols, dance and Santa Claus which gave an expression to the human values of caring, sharing and spreading the goodness and kindness. The Chief guest of the day Fr. Sathish Fernandes, Vimukti Director, Pothnal shared an inspiring Christmas message. As God the Father gave his only son to humanity so also, we are called to give ourselves to each other. Giving gifts is an easy task, but giving oneself to the other needs great sacrifice.

The joy of Christmas was at its zenith when all the children from the remote villages gathered at the Vimukti premises on 20th December 2023 for the Christmas program. Christmas is a time of joy, celebration and togetherness for many families in and around our working area. However, for some families with children, it can also be a time of financial struggle and stress. With the rising cost of living many families find it difficult to provide their children with a memorable Christmas gift. The colorful programme of the day included the distribution of Gifts to our children. The children were given Pants, Shirts and dresses for girls along with that plenty of sweets were distributed. Then the cutting of the grand cake by children was a delighted moment to all the children. After the merrymaking, the children enjoyed a sumptuous lunch. We are grateful to all the benefactors for helping and supporting the cause materially. The programme included carols, dances, sharing gifts and exchanging season’s greetings with each other. All the staff, volunteers and management participated in the Christmas celebrations.
