my experience celebrating christmas with St Judes childcare children
One special activity in my itinerary every time I visit home for vacations is attending a Khushiyan event. There’s no better way of a celebration than spreading happiness among the underprivileged and I’m thankful to Khushiyan for providing us with a platform to do the same.
This Christmas we were welcomed by little kids at St. Judes Childcare Center. All these kids are underprivileged cancer patients but they’re no different from any of us! Their laughter, their giggles brought smiles to our faces.
They’re diseased but much more lively and joyous than any of us. I’m glad we made their day by celebrating Christmas with them including all the decorations, games, children clinging to Santa Claus for chocolates and snacks.
The highlight of the event was the distribution of warm jackets amongst the kids. We, including the kids, are thankful to everyone who donated funds and their precious time for this event. It touched my heart when a 7 year old gave me a ‘Thank you’ card.
I hope their footsteps keep guiding us on our path to spread khushiyan. Proud to be a volunteer
