Now we are in November, thoughts for some of us will start to turn towards Christmas and Christmas shopping. We hope that when you are doing your shopping, you keep the hundreds of vulnerable children, supported by The William Stewart Foundation in the rural north of Malawi, in your thoughts. Could you put a few extras in your basket for children who have nothing? I’ve put a selection of things on our Reverse Advent Calendar as suggestions. However, if you’d like to buy 25 pencils or 10 bars of soap and 15 bags of wrapped sweets or donate 25 x £1 coins, that would be very much appreciated. It is totally up to you.
During December, we would ask that you spare a thought each day for these vulnerable children and young people. Perhaps you could use the traditional season of giving to help bring a smile to a child who doesn’t receive gifts, to a child who can’t go to school without a pencil and notepad, to a child who doesn’t own a toy, who has never hugged a soft toy. These orphans and other vulnerable children have missed out on much of their childhood due to working for a pittance. They have had the trauma of losing family members and of malnutrition and hunger. Could you support our reverse advent calendar by buying some gifts for a vulnerable child? thanks for reading, Sarah x
