Share the holiday spirit

Posted Dec 23rd, 2017

Dear Friend of the What If? Foundation,

fabiola baby plates of fooodChristmas is coming, and the Na Rive kitchen is as busy as can be. Every year on Christmas day the cooking team serve a special meal to over 1,000 children in Ti Plas Kazo.

These children don’t have much — the meal is most likely their only gift, and like so many other days, their only sustenance. This special day at the food program tells them that they are loved, and have not be forgotten.

For children who cannot make it to the meal, Na Rive staff ties up gifts of rice and beans to take home, so families can share Christmas dinner together.

It’s been a challenging year, but the holidays are a moment of sharing and gratitude. We celebrate with our community – our brothers and sisters — and say thank you to all of our friends who support us and our children.

On behalf of everyone in Ti Plas Kazo, we wish you much health and happiness in 2018.
