A Happy New Year to all our SOFKIN friends and family! We had a wonderful Christmas celebration at SOFKIN. The kids are so very blessed to have the support from all our donors and sponsors who made this event possible. I cannot explain in words the happiness and the excitement in SOFKIN as the children received Christmas gifts.
Our day started with prayers. We, along with Tais (care takers) and the children, cooked Biryani and mixed vegetable curry. We made over 80 food packets. The children were able to appreciate that they have their needs provided for and were happy to fast and share their joy by distributing the food packets to the people on the street.
We all went to the church, came back, and started our preparations for the evening celebrations.
The children performed various dances, skits, and sang beautiful Christmas carols. Then came the moment of excitement with Santa entering the scene with the gifts. It is almost impossible to describe the excitement and happiness in the children's faces as they received their gifts.
At the end of the day, the children shared their thoughts about the day. Each one of them felt that “giving back” is what gives immense happiness in life and it is the most memorable Christmas day ever!
Once again, thanks to all of you for your generous donations in making all of this possible and for giving a memorable Christmas day to all the SOFKIN children!
May God bless each one of you and your families with immense happiness, health and prosperity in the New Year!
