Christmas in Zaluchya
Christmas is a time of joy and celebration and a new hope, and we are so thankful to have special time at the orphanages we visit.
We try to make Christmas celebration about time and attention, friendship and mentorship, prayer and the Good News.
This year, thanks to support of Life2Orphans, Inc we had more finances for our Christmas celebrations. (our volunteers pay for their road and stay expenses during our trips, so any additional finances for the trip is a huge blessing that can be used to do something special for the kids.)

We had a pizza master class for three different groups.
The kids were so happy to actually do something themselves, to learn how to do something on their own.

We had picture frame masterclass, its important for kids to know, how they look like, and also fun to do something pretty with your hands.
We were blessed of buying a projector for that orphanage.
It turns dark pretty early in the winter there, most of the staff goes home by 16-00, and the kids don’t have anything to do. We feli like, if they could gather together and watch good cartoons and movies like discovery it would be very beneficial for them.
We showed them a storm, for example, in the sea, and they were excited to see that.And give this as a Christmas present to the orphanage.
We have joyous atmosphere on all our trips, but not always we have, a chance to make a video of the trip.
We are so thankful to our volunteer video operator, that blessed us with this video to remember the trip.
