It was a surprise

Corona no obstacle for gifts 

The children taken to bed. Literally. In some cases. This is what Saraa and Tungaa from Children’s Ger write after a wonderful International Children’s Day. June 1.

There’s always a party at Children’s Ger on International Children’s Day, June 1st. The day includes a feast and gifts, singing and playing. But this year, a corona virus got in the way. School is closed and the kids are locked up at home.

And for most kids, toys and games to pass the time are non-existent. That’s why a few weeks ago we asked CICED supporters for a donation to buy gifts for the International Children’s Day.

This amounted to almost 15,000 kroner. And gifts for all the children and their siblings. And a little extra for a nice meal at home for the occasion.

Saraa and Tunga got busy shopping for gifts and food. And distributing to all the families. It went all day. June 1 with. And some were still snoring. No one expected gifts and visits in these corona times.

Over 60 children and their families got a wonderful surprise.

Thank you so much for the contributions.
