CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR WHILE COVID-19 RAVAGING THE ENTIRE WORLD!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR 2021 TO OUR DONORS AND FRIENDS
Christmas and New Year 2021 will certainly look different this year, this doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Christmas and New Year 2021 while COVID-19 is ravaging the entire World.
In celebrating Christmas and New Year people would invite friends in their homes or restaurants , travel within their country or abroad, gathering to share special meals, praying in their respective churches, and so on … but due to COVID-19 people will be limited in celebrating Christmas and New Year 2021.
We are all facing difficult times; the Coronavirus-19 pandemic is a tremendous challenge for the entire World, for all people worldwide, and for our common home. It requires new solutions; new ways of living; new ways of working and handling things; new ways of behaving and management; new ways of dealing with the situation in which we may be. The COVID-19 health and humanitarian crisis is a very serious global concern. NEW WAYS and NEW WAYS AGAIN and AGAIN, because in whatever situation that we may be, LIFE continues.
We know that COVID – 19 is ravaging your country, and we hold you in prayer. Here in Burundi, we have few cases thus far, though near our school and surrounding community is a huge Malaria and poverty.
In Burundi, Christmas and New Year days people expect 2 things to happen:
- Eat good meal/food and drink
- Parents purchase new clothing for their children and husband purchase new clothing FOR their wives
Unfortunately many families in Burundi do not even get good meals that they were expecting to eat on Christmas and New Year Days because of their poverty.
Besides the two common things above mentioned, there are two more things in addition for Christians during Christmas and New Year Times:
- Celebrating Jesus’s birth day
- Worship and thanksgiving to God for his protection and blessings
Your Christmas Gift can help build a home for a widow and orphaned children.
Thank you for your help, despite the current situation of COVID-19 that you may experience in your area.
