YWCA spreads Christmas cheer to poor kids

Some 30 kids from Desa Mentari and Angsana low cost flats were driven by bus to the YWCA Christmas party today and what a jolly good time they had indeed. The youngest was little Bella, only 3yrs old who despite it being her first time with strangers at a Christmas party, was such a little darling. She looked exactly like Dora the cute cartoon girl character that everyone just naturally called her Dora instead of Bella.

Well this little tyke needed help to carry her around while participating in some games and boy was she delighted to win a prize as well be blessed with a really cute Santa bear all for herself which the other bigger kids a trifle jealous! However, the other kids too had a fantastic time with the many lovely gifts and presents that the YWCA team members had prepared just for the occasion  – there were new T-shirts for the boys (well the sizes were big enough for their mums) and nice collared shirts and skirts for the little girls – plus goodie bag of sweets, toys and stationery as well as a whole box of chocolates for each child.

And yes, all the kids were sooo happy because they all went home laden with gifts and all happily said, they’d love to go again for parties should JS invite them again. It takes so little to bring such joy and excitement in these youngsters life and JS is happy to be the conduit for such lovely youngsters this Christmas.
