SHILLONG: Keeping with the Christmas spirit and following the pandemic SOPs, SPARK on Saturday organized a fun-filled X-Mas celebration for around 200 underprivileged children including slum children, child labours, rag pickers, domestic helpers, physically-challenged children, street children and other distressed children from the districts of East Khasi Hills and Ri-Bhoi.
Believing that Christmas is about showcasing kindness, affection and happiness, a special get-together programme was held for the children. Every year, SPARK shares the delight of the festive season by bringing smiles to the faces of the less-privileged younger generation who work to support themselves and their families.
The programme started with a special prayer service by the Children seeking God's blessings upon all at this pandemic time triggred by COVID 19 and also for global peace and prosperity.
Stating that this was a platform for sharing love and care among all, SPARK president & founder Shima Modak stressed the essence of Christmas and wished everyone Happy Christmas and New Year.
The children showcased their talents in several colorful and fun-filled performances.
