Christmas, the festive season is the happiest holiday of the year. The children attending the El Shaddai’s Albert’s Good News Center were involved in decorating their own classes, singing joyful carols and exchanging gifts. This was not only fun for them but it also helps them build their communication and social developmental skills.  The Center organized a Christmas party for the kinder garden children’s on 21 of December 16. A day prior to the event all the children participated in the different activities such as decorating the Christmas tree and decorating their classrooms.The Christmas party began with the singing of carols followed by some games. At the end, Santa Claus entered and this brought joy on the faces of the children. There were also some children who feared to look at a huge man dressed in a red costume. The arrival of Santa Claus made the party more interesting as he danced and distributed chocolates to the children. At the end of the programme a small Christmas gift bag was given to each child. The children enjoyed the party.

The students of the secondary school in Kisslegg Germany were able to generate a considerable profit through the sale of homemade food and other items at their stand at the Christmas market in the old castle. On sale were jars of homemade jam, pastries, and cakes in glass, spices and Indian goods. This activity was carried out by the school children to support the association  – Hoffnung Kindheit and the El Shaddai children in India.

The pupils decided that the 900 Euro they earned from their sale will go to the new children’s home of El Shaddai in Vasco.

A heartfelt thanks to the tireless hardworking helpers – the Students of the Kisslegg Secondary School and the organisors of the Christmas market.

With increasingly mixed feelings, the participants of the annual charity tournament of the free archer Fuchshof in Germany observed the weather prediction. Finally, the predictions in the days leading up to the tournament date were daily gloomier.

The participants measured themselves on a total of 36 varied targets over two shooting rounds with shots over different distances and with varying difficulty.

In the breaks and after the tournament, the hardworking helpers from the Fuchshof provided for the physical well-being. The final arrow was a shot with burning arrows on a big target that catches the fire and burns down, this has now become one of the traditions of this fund raiser.

After a successful day, a generous donation of over € 710 could be handed over to El Shaddai Germany, which is to be used for the project “Education for Poverty” in India. Organizers and participants are already looking forward to the charity tournament in the coming years.

A heartfelt thanks to the archers from Fuchshof, who  are already supporting us for the seventh time with the tournament!
