Children Helping Children
We at ADRA-UK feel that it is important to educate our children about the difficulties other children like them face in countries overseas. That’s why we are encouraging churches and families to use the 2013 Gift Box project to involve children. ADRA-UK will provide appropriate educational materials for the children to understand what the challenges are for children living in a poor area of Sierra Leone.
This information will help the child and its parents to decide what to buy for a child in Sierra Leone. Letting the children choose gifts to put in the gift box is a fun and educational part of getting involved.
In previous years ADRA-UK collected shoeboxes filled with gifts for impoverished children and orphans. This year ADRA-UK has prepared a standardised gift box printed with the logo and information ready to be packed. This will help pack the container as best as possible. Gift boxes will be sold for £2 to help with shipping cost.
This is a project of ADRA-UK that aims to bring a sparkle of joy to children living in poverty. Each gift box will be given to either an orphan or a child from an impoverished family in Sierra Leone, West Africa.
For children there is something rewarding about giving to another child they will probably never meet in this world – especially when they know that their simple act of kindness will be felt and appreciated in more ways than they can imagine.
Last update: All boxes have now been allocated and we have none left. Thanks for your help! Final day for delivering the gift boxes to Watford is Sunday the 17th of November at 17:00.
