Volunteer West Africa Gives Santa a Helping Hand

Volunteer West Africa Gives Santa a Helping Hand

Date Posted: 02/01/2014
VWA volunteers and staff had an amazing and fantastically fun-filled Christmas this year giving out presents, gifts, food and treats to children in the local communities.
With so many of the children and families in the communities that VWA supports having little or no money to spare to make Christmas special, VWA - with great thanks to supporters and friends from across the globe - organised over USD $2,000 of gifts, food parcels, toys, hampers, decorations and Christmas treats that were distributed on Christmas Eve by VWA team members and volunteers.

For an example of the fun had, please view this video of a brother and sister receiving a surprise Christmas thanks to a donation from a family in the UK.

From parcels of rice, vegetables and meat for families - to sweets and treats for children - to toys and trampolines for orphanages, VWA was able to make a few special little people's Christmases just a little brighter.

A huge thanks to everyone that donated or helped organise the day.

VWA wishes everyone a bright and prosperous 2014!
