These children are from settlement areas in the nation’s capital. Most come from broken homes, a single parent or are orphans.
Thanks to a few business houses in Port Moresby, they will not feel alone this Christmas.
In fact, every individual child’s wish was granted in a special program held for them at the Vision City megamall.
The mall ran a campaign called “Wish Upon a Christmas” from December 1 – 23, where the Christmas wishes of each child was posted on a banner so the public could grant it.
The program yesterday saw each child return home with clothes, shoes, bags, bicycles and whatever else they had wished for.
Sponsors who stepped in to make this event possible were Huawei (major sponsor), Jack’s of PNG, Kids World, Cherish, Star Office Works and some individuals (customers).
The gifting program also had a fair share of entertainment provided by “The Family Show” featuring Jamie Lee and Jagarizza and new artist Miss TRV.
There were games like limbo, where the public was invited to participate.
Prizes were also given away and 5 lucky draw for kids.
Making this occasion extra special was the presence of Santa Claus.
