Is Buying Christmas Gifts Stressful?

I know you may not like to be reminded but Christmas is just around the corner and if you find it stressful buying Christmas gifts, then it may be time to rethink what to buy people.

Christmas is a symbol of “Giving” and gift giving a practice intended to express love and friendship. But how many of these gifts go unwanted? In the US it is estimated that US$16 billion is spent on unwanted gifts.

If you have family or friends that are difficult to buy for or say they have everything they need, then they may appreciate a Christmas Gift Card that supports a worthwhile project. A gift that has lasting value and a gift that makes a difference. For example, US$10, will provide this little boy, who has cancer, and his caregiver with 3 meals a day for a week.

You can purchase a Gift Card through GlobalGiving and the options are:

  • Make a donation in honour of someone special and send them a note and if you wish to support our children with cancer, the project name is “Helping poor children with cancer to access treatment.”
  • Or buy a Gift Card and the recipient can redeem it to a project that matters to them. Hopefully our project!

Beat the Christmas rush this year and shop early and give a gift that keeps on giving.  https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/keeping-poor-children-with-cancer-alive-in-uganda/

 

World Aids Day -1 Dec The theme is ‘Equalize’.

World Aids Day is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness.

The theme this year is ‘Equalize’. WHO is calling on global leaders and citizens to boldly recognize and address the inequalities which are holding back progress in ending AIDS; and equalize access to essential HIV services particularly for children and key populations and their partners.

KHC has been very active in this area; reaching out to communities, provide free HIV testing, particularly for those groups that are most vulnerable and providing free medical treatment to those who are diagnosed HIV positive.

Our Mother to Child Transmission program has a 100% success rate with the mothers on our program, giving birth to a child that is HIV negative.

There is still a lot of work to be done.
