On December 12th, a handful of staff and one student headed into the city for the “Christmas Celebration for Refugee Children”, an event sponsored by Oasis International School. The event, part of our Operation Impact 2021 initiative, aimed to provide some holiday cheer for local Pakistani and Middle East refugees after a long and difficult year. It was a wonderful night full of music, children's performances, food, and gift-giving. In the end, over 40+ children received boxes stuffed with small gifts donated from the OIS community.
The Operation Impact events are now over, but if you would like to donate, there’s still time. Donations will be delivered to organizations after the new year. We are still hoping to collect a few more used digital devices. If you have one that you would be willing to donate to The Peace Education Center, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
