Receiving a Christmas present

Each year we hold Christmas celebrations in all of the Preschools in Mae-la camp. This takes place in December of each year. The event takes three months to organize so we launch the appeal in September of each year.

This event is greatly anticipated by children in the camp and is a huge highlight for them. It builds morale and helps them to feel valued.

Our goal is to raise $5,000 by October 31, when the first bills for this event will need to be paid.

COVID 19 restrictions will complicate this year’s event and we are looking at ways in which we can still provide each child with a nutritious Christmas meal and a wrapped present without breaking social distancing guidelines or endangering anyone’s health.

We expect that COVID preventions will slightly increase the cost of this year’s event.
