Dear friends and supporters,

With this newsletter we would like to ask you for a donation for our annual Christmas campaign, with which we would like to bring joy to the 60 children and young people in Lithuania as well as their carers for Christmas 2021. Please read below the information about the organization of our gift campaign:

The annual Christmas campaign for our children and young adults in Lithuania has been an integral part of our activities for 24 years and always brings great joy to us and the recipients. This year we have chosen cheerful bedding sets as gifts to provide warmth and comfort in the cold Lithuanian winter. In total, we want to give away 60 beautiful bedding sets (20 of them for the children in the Marijampoles Children’s Village and 40 for the young adults in the PATRIA program) as well as host beautiful Christmas parties and hope for your support.

The PATRIA organization will purchase the bedding sets in Lithuania. We send our Christmas cards to Lithuania from Frankfurt. Our request now is as follows:

  • Please adopt a bedding set 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 PATRIA will buy the bed linen locally.
  • 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 PATRIA with a general monetary donation of your choice. Likewise, we would like to give the team at Maijampole Children’s Village and the social workers at PATRIA a small Christmas gift in recognition of their valuable work.

Ingrid Debald has taken over the coordination of the Christmas campaign. We ask for news until November 29, 2021, if you would like to donate some money for the purchase of a Christmas gift or 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, Lerchesbergring 107, 60598 Frankfurt/Main) by December 1, 2021 at the latest, so that we can send the letters to Lithuania by post in good time.
