The “Christmas is Jesus” campaign which since 15 years is organized by the Christian Life Movement (CLM) has set itself the task to bring forth to 100 thousand children of the most poor parts of Peru the true meaning of this holiday.
“Christmas is Jesus” has gathered this year more than 10 thousand voluntaries, from high schools, universities and professionals who came to prepare the visits to different settlements in Lima, Arequipa, and other minor cities of the country.
From November 26 to January 6th, the minors will have a day of feast in which they will celebrate the birth of Christ with catechesis, games and music. Moreover, each kid will receive a gift, chocolate and paneton.
Although traditionally, the voluntaries of the campaign are students, this year the initiative counts on the help from working people from various corporations who have added themselves to this solidarity and evangelization initiative.
The CLM will organize a national fund raiser on December 3rd to finance the campaign.
The CLM is a catholic association that sprang up in Peru in 1985 as part of the Sodalite Family. Today it gathers more than 40 thousand members throughout America, Europe, Asia and more recently Africa. Its mission is to promote a new evangelization and reconciliation, with a stress on youth, culture and a commitment to the most in need.
