Popcorn, presents, a massive piñata, games, bubbles, music, a delicious Christmas lunch and joy.
886 children from 11 communities had an amazing first-ever CHR Christmas party and your gift helped make it happen.
It took a lot of work for this to happen, so let's walk through how it all went down :)

For many of these children, this was a Christmas party unlike no other.
Each child received a personalised gift, a beautiful meal was shared, fun treats abounded, games were loud to top it off, and each family received a large bag of flour to help with food over the Christmas period.
This is not a normal Peace Club end-of-year party. This happened because of an amazing community partnership with a local company.
In 2023, the Honduras team committed to finding more ways to resource the Childhood Rescue projects.
They decided they wanted to find new ways to engage companies that would hopefully be inspired to join the journey of helping Honduran children build a future.
Your gift didn't exactly buy personalised gifts for 886 children, or supply 'Christmas' flour to hundreds of families. But it didn't help run amazing homework and peace clubs in 11 different and complex areas.
The success and clear results of our programmes are not going unnoticed. (Huge shout out to the small but mighty CHR team)
It was these results that inspired local businesses to join forces with us. The key partner company did a gift-matching competition with their staff, and it was truly the children who won.
Many children expressed their disbelief at receiving a brand new gift, just for them.
This was a big achievement for the Honduras team, which you and your gift are a part of. Building successful community and business partnerships helps our work greatly, it raises awareness, builds stronger local support and of course, helps to sometimes deliver something magical for the children.
If there's ever a time for some hope and magic, it's Christmas :)
