Christmas and New Year Celebration


Christmas/New Year Celebration

Social Wellbeing - 30/12/10
All of the Utulivu children wore broad smiles on their faces as they opened gifts wrapped with love and kindness by the Utulivu well-wishers through The Christmas Giving Tree organised by The Reading Evening Post.

The event was a clear indication of the benefits Utulivu has continued to enjoy in their work of integration in the community, and also the message of love though sharing they always uphold within the group as they promote health in families and the wider community.
The children and adults who were present were reminded of the importance of time management, being focused and good citizenship as participating members of the wider community in order to achieve health and wealth.
More than 40 children benefited from The Christmas Giving Tree this year and we hope that his number will continue to increase in coming years.
