Christmas packages 2023

Each year, Traveling Light supports a number of Christmas packages projects from various organizations. It is a blessing to be able to give to people who are less fortunate for whatever reason, perhaps because they are refugees, addicted, homeless, or far away from home. Surely, one of these projects thas your your heart 💓 

Winter packages Moldova

Our friends from Pilgrims and Teen Challenge are organizing their winter campaign for the 19th time. Last year they delivered 40 tons of coal and more than 400 food parcels to the poor and the widows.

The food packages meet a huge need, each package contains about 12 to 13 kilos of food!

We have been sponsoring this campaign for many years and we will certainly do it again. If you want to stay warm this winter, give warmth to someone else! Give... and it will be given to you 😁


Christmas bags for sailors

The Christmas period is the opportunity for port evangelist Alexander Eberson to show seafarers in word and deed that God loves them too. He wants to give a Christmas package to the sailors he visits.

Each Christmas package contains a hat, a pair of socks, a game, a notebook with pen, a bar of chocolate, a roll of mentos fruit, a bottle of shower gel, a homemade Christmas card, and a Christmas message.


Operation Christmas Joy

Transform Iran (formerly 222 Ministries) also wants to show the love of Jesus to vulnerable children this Christmas. They do this with Operation Christmas Joy (OCJ). The parents of these vulnerable children are poor or persecuted for their faith and/or had to flee their country.

The children receive a Christmas package containing warm clothes or shoes, school supplies and toys. The children are also invited to a Christmas party where they can play with others, enjoy Christmas music and show off their presents. Perhaps they are hearing the Christmas story from the Bible for the first time.

In 2022, Operation Christmas Joy brought gifts to 987 children from 3 countries. Today, the children of Christian-Iranian refugees in Turkey are having a harder time than ever. Even at school, they experience persecution and they do not know where they will live tomorrow. The children of Armenian refugees (as a result of the attacks on Artsakh) also need help. OCJ wants to give a Christmas gift to these Armenian children as well.
