Christmas During Covid

After almost a whole year of battling through a pandemic, christmas was there to make up for the loss and the hard times, but the pandemic was not over.

Our team worked so hard last year to make sure that the spaces where the kids and their families hang out at the hospitals were safe and free of any danger, by keeping the spaces in the clinic sanitized we assured a safe spacewhere the kids could scape their illness and play.

With christmas getting closer and closer, we started wondering how were we gonna do our annual celebration without any risks of the kids getting sick. Every year we take gifts from the community, families and department stores, and we bring volunteers from local schools to meet the ill children and spend some quality time with them  before christmas. We always invite Santa to come say hi to them, and they are always so happy to see him. This year, bringing people from outside could put our children in danger.

As usual, we collected the gifts donated from the store and some families, and invited Santa to come along. He was our only guest this year, but the children were as happy as they always are when they see him walking in with his big red coat holding a big bag of christmas gift for them.

It was hard not to get emotional right there, seeing these kids going through this horrible disease, in the middle of a horrible pandemic and there they  were smiling at Santa and telling him their wishes.

Outside of that room there's a city where people dying alone during the holidays from a horrible virus, but inside that room at that very moment there was only joy and the magic of Santa was real.
