Working with a Church-run school in Gaza, IOCC recently participated in a Christmas celebration. Festivities included songs of the season, performances by school groups, and other fun activities. In addition to students, staff, and parents, community members and donor representatives also attended. About 600 people attended in all.
As part of the celebration, over 400 schoolchildren received Christmas gifts of warm winter comforters—bedding to improve their quality of life and health through winter.
