Operation Christmas Child

Samaritan’s Purse’ is a non-denominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting  and the needy people around the world. The name of the organization is based on the New Testament Parable of the Good Samaritan, in which Jesus uses a parable to teach people one form of the Golden Rule; love your neighbour as yourself”.

Gifts imported from abroad included various items ranging from pens, dress wearing, dolls, chappals, study tools and so on.
