Family Care Indonesia :: Project Updates for December 2016

December 2016 Project Update

Bali, Kupang and Atambua

Bali, Kupang and Atambua Family Care Indonesia Volunteers Albert and Daniel travel to Bali then to Kupang, NTT and on to Atambua, NTT. In Bali we visited and orphanage interacting with the children through songs and “story telling”. We also gave gift bags to each one of the children. While in Bali we also visited with friends and renewed contact. After arriving in Kupang we visited a village near the ocean where most of the people are fishermen. We had a fun time singing with the children in the village teaching them songs and distributing gift bags to each of the children.

From Kupang we went to Atambua, where we spent a few days visiting with the school teachers and children at the Primavera School. (This is the school that Family Care Indonesia helped to build in Atambua) We distributed gift bags to the children and had story time together. Thanks to sponsors we were able to give a financial gift to help cover the cost of renovation on the school building.

While in Atambua we also contacted some of our friends and visited the local prison with them. We gave a motivational talk to all the inmates and spent time to get to know some of them personally. Special thanks to all those who helped to make these visits possible.


Second Trip to Atambua

Our December program focus was on brining Christmas gifts for the children in Nusa Tenggara Timor (NTT) since this is predominantly a Catholic area. Most of the children in NTT have never had an opportunity to really enjoy the spirit of Christmas giving and spreading love.

This was our aim in going to these remote mountainous areas of NTT. We collected 1000+ stuffed toys, colored pencils and vitamins to make packages as gifts for the many children we visited.

For many children, our visit was the first time for them to receive a gift for Christmas. We visited 4 primary schools in 4 villages and distributed 2000 Christmas posters, 100 Christmas story books and 100 Activated books. Thank you to our wonderful friends who made this program possible.
