It was a big project for Léa to started in December in YPGD. Volunteers organised Christmas workshops in Borovo.
The goal was to make a beautiful Christmas for everyone; decorations, christmas gifts and christmas cookies
made by little ones for elderly people.
The first step, was making Christmas tree decorations. That’s why, volunteers painted little reindeers,
Santa Claus, Christmas trees,...

Volunteers enjoyed so much this activity.

that eldery people will be happy with these gifts and they will have a very merry Christmas.
