The 4th annual Christmas Party in Berceni was a spectacular success thanks to the incredible generosity of our corporate and individual sponsors, as well as the hard work of our dedicated volunteers.
School children from Corlatesti opened the day with joyful songs, after which 600 people in need enjoyed a typical Romanian Christmas meal prepared by volunteers from the village. Every child received a gift and candy from Santa, then enjoyed the beautiful day by playing games setup by volunteers. On their way out, each family took home two large bags full of groceries including meat, rice, milk, oil and candy.
