AYUDH Brasil recently held two Christmas events at different centers to end 2016 with a festive goodbye and to set a joyous tone for 2017. AYUDH Brasil started their work in Rio by throwing a Christmas party at ‘Casa Betania’, a home for the elderly that don’t have any family members to care for them. The AYUDH members brought snacks for the 80 residents and led everyone in some merry Christmas caroling!
AYUDH also threw a party for the children of ‘Casa de Acolhida’, a home for children that have grown up in dangerous and troubled environments. The AYUDH crew handed out blessing bags filled with personal hygiene products and other cleaning products for the house. They also provided a delicious meal to the children with a variety of snacks and desserts that the children loved. The AYUDH members spent all day at the house playing with the children!
The donations and food for the parties came from different donors throughout Brasil after AYUDH Brasil had spread AYUDH’s message of love and service. Although the group has just started, the help and support they received from the community is every exciting! We believe that with small actions of love and compassion, we made the holiday season much brighter forthose whose seasons might have been dim.
