Dear friends and supporters,

the annual Christmas campaign for our children and young adults in Lithuania has been a particularly nice part of our activities for 22 years and always brings great joy to us and the recipients. This year we chose bath towels as gifts that can be used for school, sports and small trips. In total, we want to give away 85 colorful, cozy bath towels (25 of them for the children in the Marijampoles Children’s Village and 60 for the young adults in the PATRIA program) as well as host nice Christmas parties and hope for your support.

Ingrid Debald will purchase the bath towels in Germany. We will then send them to Lithuania together with the Christmas cards. Our request now is as follows:

  • Please adopt a bath towel as a gift for your sponsored child or for a young adult in the PATRIA program and donate 30 Euros for it. From this amount we will buy the bath towels.
  • Please write a Christmas card to your sponsored child or to a young person in the PATRIA program ( “Dear friend in the PATRIA-program”…), gladly with photo, in English or German. The children and young people are always very happy to receive personal mail from their German sponsors or supporters.
  • Support the Christmas celebrations in each Children’s Village family and in the PATRIA group with a general monetary donation of your choice and the purchase for the family Christmas packages that will contain tea, pastries, sweets and candles. We would also like to give a small Christmas present to the mothers and aunts in the Children’s Village and the social workers at PATRIA in recognition of their great work.

Ingrid Debald has taken over the coordination of the Christmas campaign. We ask for news until November 28, 2019, if you would like to take over a Christmas gift or donate some money for the Christmas parties.

Ingrid Debald can be reached at or Tel: 069/74309064.

Please send the personal Christmas letter for the sponsored child or young person in the PATRIA program to Ingrid Debald, Westendstr 68, D – 60325 Frankfurt/Main by December 8, 2019 at the latest, so that we can send the letters to Lithuania by mail in time
