Our 2009 Holiday Project was a great success! Thanks so much to our tireless volunteer Mandie Doak who spearheaded this effort from helping to fundraise to purchasing, wrapping and delivering all the gifts. Our Santa was Jeff Goldenberg who was in Addis with his wife Naomi Kirtner to pick up their two new children that week. He was a great sport to spend hours in the red suit under a hot sun giving every single child at Layla a gift.
The babies participated in their traditional clothing!
A group of the older children even put on a drama for the young ones about the Biblical story of Joseph, Mary and the birth of Jesus.
