Situation

There are millions of children around the world who are living in conditions that we couldn't imagine. Many are orphans, that Samaritans Purse continue to support through many relief projects. Operation Christmas Child gives over 1 million children a year around the world the opportunity to receive a gift from someone they'll never meet at Christmas time. For most of the children, its the first present they have ever received, and all in a shoebox!!

Solution

We continue to support Operation Christmas Child, providing shoeboxes filled with goodies for children aged: 2-4, 5-9 and 10-14. We have a team of volunteers currently knitting, fundraising and haggling with market traders to get the best deals
