With the support of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the implementing partners – Charity Centre for Refugees and Ave Copiii – organised on December 27, a beautiful, artistic and cultural, educational and fun celebration dedicated to the winter holiday season.
Its beneficiaries were primarily refugees and
asylum seekers in Moldova and their children, who enjoyed a veritable feast program. Around the Christmas tree, decorated with toys and beautiful colored lights, gathered girls and boys eager to met Santa Claus and to receive the deserved gifts.
With ribbons in their hair and dresses white as snow, girls danced with Snow White, and then, together with the boys, they called and met Santa Claus.
With a congratulatory message came the director of Charity Center for Refugees, Mr. Djavid Paknehad: “Today we celebrate wonderful moments together! Christmas and New Year are those that unite us and we come together to enjoy the miracle of winter celebrations! Every year we gather here, adults and children to receive gifts and enjoy Christmas with Santa. I wish Happy Holidays and a peaceful year to everyone present! I wish that children enjoy their parents with high marks, and they, in turn, enjoy the achievements of their children! Let the coming year bring only peace in your soul, new achievements, success, fulfillment and fun! “
Forwards, Mr. Batcu Vasile, Ave Copiii Director, did a retrospective of the year in which “we had several events which were crowned with success because the balance of our work is quite good, so we can draw new tasks for the coming year. The birth of our Lord Jesus Christ that unites us every year, has a special significance in the hearts of everyone, regardless of nationality and language. It is a celebration expected both by children and adults. I wish everyone Happy Holidays and a New Year full of achievements. “
Every year, children receive gifts from various international organizations. This year the celebration was attended by representatives of the organization “ADRA Switzerland”, which, as every year, came with gifts collected by people with good hearts in Switzerland.
The holiday got more colors when at the children call, in the room appeared a clown. He cheered up the children with his jokes, and attracted the most daring, including their parents, in various funny games. The children danced and sang and felt better with Snow White, and the most courageous and resourceful received gifts from the clown and Santa Claus.
Rahid, Anjor, Abdul, Navid, Luisa and others pleased Santa with many poems and carols. A beautiful Romanian carol was interpreted in Romanian by the Indian girl Alvina, who demonstrated later, with his girlfriend Ganga, a traditional Indian dance. Santa was pleasantly surprised by Adriana’s violin, which was applauded by the happy audience, then he kept removing from his magic bag the long-awaited sweets and presents, and divided them from small to big ones.
The celebration organized for refugees sparked a bit of light on the faces of children and in the parent’s soul. Traditionally, at the end of the ceremony, everyone danced with Santa Claus and Snow White around the beautiful Christmas tree!
