Project Report | Jan 8, 2024
Happy new year!

By Federica Gruppioni | Project leader

Dear Friend,

Here we are at the starting of a new year together!

Thanks to your precious support, the past year has been full of wonderful activities for the children coming to the Pinocchio Center with heavy jackets and huge backpacks after the school.

Thank you for being by their side.

Last December was plenty of smiles on the children's faces and there was big excitement in the air of preparing for the Christmas time.

In Romania it is a tradition to celebrate Saint Nicholas, who arrives on the night between 5 and 6 December. For the children Saint Nicholas brings gifts, especially sweets, and leaves them in clean shoes placed near the front door.

Lucia and Antonella, the IBO Community Service Volunteer in Panciu, told us that for Saint Nicholas they decorated the Pinocchio Center with the children with the Christmas tree,  a fireplace of colored paper and many colored socks decorated with glitters. Everything created a warm atmosphere of joy.

On 6th December the children found the socks secretly filled with sweets and a note for the children written by Saint Nicholas! In addition to the socks, clothes and school supplies were donated. Besides this, the children enjoyed playing at a wonderful prize draw with over 90 soft toys donated by donors.
It was a great day for all the children who went home with their arms full of gifts, with bright eyes and hearts full of happiness. Like the little Stefan, 5 years old, who received a beautiful pair of purple gloves, scarf, hat and boots with lights now shining in the snow. And Daniel, with a red face, says that the things he loves most about Christmas are sweets and candies.

In the last days of December the children prepared a Christmas show with dances wearing traditional red and white dresses, and with the "Colinde de Craciun" the typical Romanian Christmas carols.

We would like to send you our warmest and most sincere best wishes for a Serene and Happy New Year  from Lumea lui Pinocchio and IBO Italia. 

Thank you very much for your gift of choosing to support the children of Panciu,
