Christmas is a time when we can show the street children that they are loved and that they are special, so Kimbilio will again be appealing to supporters this coming Christmas for funds to purchase gifts for the children. These children have very little in the way of material possessions so a Christmas gift is truly valued.
Kimbilio also puts on a special Christmas party with food and games for the children, and it is heart-warmimng to see the joy on their faces at this time.
So thank you for your support last Christmas and we would really appreciate your continiuing support this coming Christmas. It will be here sooner than you think!
This year we were able to make Christmas special for the street children of Lubumbashi. At the Day Centre in the middle of the city and at the four homes that we run, we provided special food and drinks and played games with the children. The Congolese love their music and it was great to see the children (and the Kimbilio staff) dancing and enjoying the music. The happiness on the children's faces was so heartening to behold given the hard times so many of them had endured in their short lives.
We were also able to provide special treats and activities for those children at the new Kimbilio Junior School at the end of their first term.
