HPAD donations for orphanage in Kremenchug, Ukraine

This Christmas Harris Primary Academy East Dulwich have decided to support an orphanage in Kremenchug, Ukraine. The orphanage has 100 children currently in residence with about 25% having a disability and the majority being babies. Kremenchug Orphanage is a safe environment that provides comfort and food. What the children do not have are many personal possessions. We want to make sure they have something to open on Christmas day, something that belongs to them and makes them feel happy and loved. So we have decided to join forces with some other primary schools and provide them with some fun and happiness on Christmas day.

 

We would like to invite you to buy a little present to go in a shoebox for a child. Each class will be putting together a shoebox for 2 children.

We will also be taking a collection of nappies and toothbrushes. Also, if you have any shoeboxes that would be a great help!

 

Please take a look at the age and gender of the child to help you with your present choices.

 

Present ideas: warm socks, hat, cars, rattles, balls or books. No sweets or food, please.

All contributions need to be brought into school by 25th November. Each class teacher will collect donations.

 

We think this will be a great opportunity for our pupils to learn about other children in the world. We hope you are as excited as us about sending off our gifts.

Thank you in advance!
