Christmas is not just about eating cakes, wearing a new dress, decorating your house with colorful lights, Christmas trees and Santa Claus. No, this is not real Christmas. Real Christmas is showing the love of Jesus to others, helping people who are rejected by the society, those who are displaced and hungry. It is about giving them food, clothing them and letting the world see Jesus in you and through you. Christmas is about sharing the love of Jesus.
We strongly believe that until people ACT to change what doesn’t affect them personally and directly but affects millions of people in their community, then they are not craving to truly be the change they want to see in Nigeria, Africa and globally.
We strongly believe that great people are those who see the painful state of their fellow citizens, the pathetic conditions of the system and traumatizing situations and take a step to change such conditions even when it does not directly or indirectly affect them.
The 2015 WESA CHRISTMAS PROJECT organized by Foundation for Women Empowerment and Skills Acquisition was sponsored by Madam Antoinette Edodo.
WESA CHRISTMAS PROJECT 2015 was an amazing event that put smiles on the faces of the less privileged at ANKOMA IDPs CAMP IN NASARAWA STATE.
