As in previous years India Direct is fundraising to give the children and widows we support a special Christmas. We are selling Christmas cards for £10 each. Each of the 165 children at Joy and Bethel will receive a new set of clothes and a Christmas present as well as a Christmas party at which they will have a special Christmas meal (usually Chicken Biryani on a banana leaf!), a visit from Santa and visits from their family. The money raised as part of the Christmas Direct appeal pays the travel expenses of their families. Each of the 35 widows receives a new sari and a sack of rice as well as enjoying the Christmas party and meal. The Christmas cards come with a stamped addressed envelope and we ask that you write a message in the card and include a photo of yourself and post them by December 5th to make it to India in time for Christmas.
