Shillong, Dec 26: Keeping up with the Christmas spirit SPARK organized a fun-filled Christmas celebration for around 300 underprivileged children including slum children, child labours, rag pickers, domestic helpers, cowboys, physically challenged children, street children and other distressed children from East Khasi Hills and Ri-Bhoi districts.
Believing that Christmas is about showcasing kindness, affection and happiness, a special get-to- gather programme was organized for these children.
Every year SPARK aims to share the delight of the festive season by bringing smiles to the faces of the less privileged.
Hence this year too, SPARK team was glad that it could do their bit in giving back to society and create an unforgettable experience for these children and providing them a platform to enjoy the festival to the fullest as most of these children are debarred of their precious childhood and fun-filled life because they have to work to support themselves and their families.
The programme started with a Special Prayers Service by the Children asking God’s blessings upon all at this time of crisis due to COVID 19 and for peace and prosperity in the whole world.
Thereafter, Shima Modak, President & Founder of SPARK stressed on the essence of Christmas and wished everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
She stressed on the essence of organizing such a special programme for the distressed and underprivileged children thereby making the day really special for them. This was a platform of sharing love and care among all.
Besides these, there were many colorful and fun-filled performances by the children who rocked the stage.
This day is very special for these deprived and distressed children as they get a platform to showcase their talents and skills which is no less than others.
