Mjedenica school in Sarajevo has 166 mentally and physically handicapped children. Their age from 7 to 18 years, both boys and girls. Most of these children have no contact with their parents or family. Therefore during the holidays, it is especially important for this group of children to give them extra attention and warmth. The opportunities from the government and individuals are limited.
As a foundation, we have, in consultation with the Director of Mjedenica decided that all 166 children had to have a visit from Santa Claus and providing them with a surprise. All the children were excited and surprised that there was a Christmas gift for each of the children by Santa Claus. This took place on December 20, 2013, just before the holiday. Definitely worth it, and we think that this year again Santa will visit Mjedenica.
