Providing new clothes at Christmas for the children who live in orphanages—what are for most the only new clothes they receive all year—has been a great tradition at Orphan’s Tear for many years now, and Christmas 2014 was no different.
Except, perhaps, that this time sponsors didn’t receive an appeal beforehand as we’ve done in the past.
At the end of 2014 we were blessed to have enough donations left over from previous years to purchase new clothes for all the children in our sponsorship program. But I’m also thrilled to report that the excess was enough to purchase new clothes for children in 40 other orphanages—that means that over 700 kids received Christmas clothes for the first time!
Photos of children with their new clothes are streaming in, so I want to show you a few of them. Below are photos of 6 of the 71 orphanages that received Christmas clothes this year.
Thank you all so much for your ongoing partnership to better the lives of orphans in Jesus’ name. May the Lord bless you in 2015!
Director of Orphan’s Tear
