Christmas For Orphans

By Mehwish Ayyub | Supervisor

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me... Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."  -Matthew 25:35-36,40

Christmas is not only a time that is filled with much celebration and activity, but also a time we most deeply feel the significance of family in our lives. Although we believe that God’s call to care for widows and orphans is something that should be woven into our everyday lives, Christmas is a time when we are especially aware of the importance of family and that’s why we
invited you all to take time during the hustle and bustle of your holiday celebrations to remember those who continue to wait for the gift of love and care and we are so grateful for your support.

This Christmas we wanted to make these little angels a part of our celebration. We wanted them to feel special, the way other kids do who are more blessed to have families and that’s why we planned a special Christmas Celebration at the orphanage and gave out gifts to orphans.

An orphanage is a place where happiness is not seen a lot of time. The children are emotionally unsecure and always look for solace through someone or something. The children from different kind of societies, regions and religions stay in orphanage. We care about all children because they are our future and that’s why we want to be there for them. No matter if the effort is small, we believe that the impact will be big because these kids will start believing in the good.

This is like the unspoken prayer, or the hug you give when you just don’t know what to say. With a gift to Where Most Needed, you’ll be there for a child who doesn’t know how to pick up the pieces of their life.

We distributed gifts to all the orphans in the orphanage including some special kids who aren’t living with their parents and couldn’t express in words our feelings and just want to thank you  all for making this easy for us.

Although we were 150$ short than our expense but we still wanted to make this Christmas special for as many kids as we could.

If you or anyone you know would like to donate for us to keep doing these amazing things for the kids in need then please do so or else we will be deactivating this project soon as our purpose is fulfilled of making Christmas special.

Thank You!

Together, we are transforming lives!
