On Wednesday 17 December, the Hope House Holiday
Giving Tree project group from Prem International attended
the holiday party at Hope House, deliver the gifts, eat dinner together
with the children, lead some games, and distribute the gifts that the
Prem community had donated during December. The newest members of Hope
House received gifts for the first time, and this was the first gift
some of them had ever received. Once all of the gifts were unwrapped,
the Prem students were inundated with big hugs and thank-yous for
organising the project. The gratefulness of these children for the
surprises and loving gifts they received was clear throughout the
evening and is a great example of the amazing work being done at Hope
House. There are many children at Hope House who still need to find
sponsors to support the costs for living and learning in Hope House. For
