The dire need of chil­dren and women who will have very lit­tle to bring them joy this fes­tive sea­son, has brought about a joint ini­tia­tive by Mark Sahd of In­te­ri­ors in Ko­mani and Ba­balwa Mag­wanti of Avenir Me­dia House.

They have placed a Christ­mas tree, named the Mir­a­cle of Hope, in In­te­ri­ors and a call is be­ing made upon the com­mu­nity to do­nate non-per­ish­able foods, toys, blan­kets, toi­letries and money at In­te­ri­ors to help brighten up the lives of the vic­tims of abuse be­ing treated at the Ez­i­be­leni One-Stop Cen­tre for abused women and chil­dren.

Sahd said this week that Christ­mas do­na­tions may be dropped off un­til De­cem­ber 21.

“Peo­ple can still con­trib­ute af­ter that as there is a great need.”

The spe­cial sig­nif­i­cance of this year’s tree at In­te­ri­ors – and Mag­wanti’s ef­forts – fol­lowed af­ter she was in­volved in the 16 Days of Ac­tivism for No Vi­o­lence against Women and Chil­dren at the Wesley Methodist Church in Ko­mani re­cently.

“Even a tiny do­na­tion will make a dif­fer­ence to the lives of women and chil­dren in need this year,” Sahd said.
