BRINGING HAPPINESS AND CONSOLATION TO THE CHILDREN
Our community has shared Christmas gifts with 70 children below 10 years old which live near our community in Yangon.

On Dec 26, 2020, preparation day, we arranged the materials (toys, clothes, shoes, color pencils and crayons) that we received from benefactors and some snacks prepared by the members of our community.  We arranged all things and put in the bags for 70 children. After this, we gathered together all the sisters of the community to discuss about “what message we want to give to our neighbors”. Even they are not catholic we wanted to share the message of Christmas with them by giving some messages with decoration in front of our community: entering our house they could read the words of PEACE, LOVE, HOPE, JOY and CONSOLATION announcing that “OUR SAVIOR WAS BORN, ALLELUIA.”

On Dec 27, 2020, 10:00 am in the morning, celebration day, more than 70 children arrived already to our community with one of their family members wearing the proper mask as it is necessary in this time of pandemic. Before we started the activities, we greeted them and asked them to keep the social distance. At first, we explained why we were giving the presents for the children, so that they can understand that was sharing the happiness of Christmas. Then, junior sisters, postulant and aspirants danced and performed Christmas songs. Two women who live near our community helped us when we distributed the gifts. We finished all our activities at 10:30 am and we gave snacks to some children who were not in the list.

We give thanks to God for this simple activity with children seeing their smiling faces not only children but also their family members especially their mothers. We thank to all our benefactors who shared their stuffs for the poor and we keep them in our prayer always. We feel that we are only mediator for sharing between those who have more and those who needs. Joyfully we made this activity carefully in this difficult time of pandemic. We wish for this year 2021, we will able to do more activities to bring happiness and consolation for the children of our environment.
