The Christmas season has an atmosphere of joy and magic that can’t be found any other time of the year.
The season brings out the best in all humans; it evokes warm fuzzies, smiles and memories of fun times spent with loved ones.
However, this is normally not the case with underprivileged children that live on our doorstep; they simply lack the means to celebrate this festive season with magic.
Against the above background, the Ruparelia Foundation in partnership with Unilever, Crown Beverages, Lato Milk, The Dawa Foundation, Speke Resort Munyonyo, Kabira Country Club, Kampala Parents’ School, Kampala Kids Run, Victoria University and individual sponsors, has organized a Christmas party dubbed “Make Their Christmas One to Remember” for the underprivileged children.
The purpose of the event is to give these children a Christmas experience that they otherwise would not have and make their memory of it one to remember.
The event shall take place on Sunday 15, 2019 at Kampala Parents’ School Play Grounds starting at 12:00PM up to 4:00PM.
The children shall be treated to snacks, drinks, lunch, live music, outdoor activities, entertainment and gifts among others.
Over the weekend, Ruparelia Foundation Trustees Sheena Ruparelia and Naiya Ruparelia visited Angel’s Centre in Nansana and Katanga Kids’ Project to personally invite the underprivileged children for the Christmas party but also spend some quality time with them.
“We are looking forward to spending more time with the underprivileged children on 15th Sunday 2019,” Sheena Ruparelia says.
A donation of drinks, biscuits, sweets and a pledge of four sewing machines were made during the visit.
“We can’t change their lives overnight but we can start small by organizing such events,” says Naiya Ruparelia.
She adds: “My time with these children will always make me appreciate what I have and to remain content and humble for they are happy despite their situation.
