Christmas Campaign 2010

As Christmas approaches the Christmas Campaign for the Poor of the Visitation Church gathered at the Wisma Vistation of Seremban on 11 September 2010 to give a helping hand to pack the sundry goods and other materials before distrusting to the low income group and with the special needs. This project has started 3 months ago running parallel with the Church restoration fund raising. The committee members did conduct a survey in remote areas where the poor live with the cooperation of the Parish Integral Human Development (IHD) and BEC leaders. The objective of this Christmas Campaign is to share the Christmas spirit with the marginalised and the poor irrespective of race and faith. About 40 members including the Catholic Students' Society (CSS) and Youth-2-Youth came to pack the sundry goods and other materials as well whereas school uniforms, shoes and stationery will be added in the form of vouchers valued of RM100 for their children on the day of distribution. The food parcels will be distributed to 111 families. While this exercise takes place, the members will sing carols and bring Christmas cheers into their homes.

This Christmas Campaign for the poor was initiated by by the late Fr Limat in 1966. This year chair person is Spencer Sequerah.
