Can you imagine having to study without a table or chair at school?
These children in Tamil Nadu, India can. Because they had too!
Now thanks, to the generosity of children just like them from Poland, they don’t have to any longer.
Here they are pictured sitting at their new school desks for the first time!
The children also received books and stationary to help them in their studies.
A beautiful witness to Christian solidarity and love.
As we continue to journey towards Christmas, may we have hearts that are filled with love and generosity like those of these children.
“God, who cannot be outdone in generosity,
still uses you and me to help our brothers and sisters.”
Pope Francis, 5th March 2018
