Today the Love Foundation has teamed up with its partners to host a number of special needs children at a Christmas Party in Orange Walk Town. Love News spoke with Yvette Lui about the event.
“We partnered with UNICOMER, the Love Foundation, the Orange Walk Down Syndrome Group , The Women Achieving Valuable Empowerment (WAVE), Ms. Cindy Rivero and Ms. Yahaira Vega, DMX Gabriel Magic Group, Emmanuel Robinson which is the Futuristic Artistry Group and the various artists that came together today to share a little bit of love and caring this Christmas season. We believe that Christmas is a time of caring and sharing a little bit of Love and why not in this special time of the year which is Christmas. The first time ever that we came together to put this party together for the Special Needs Children of Orange Walk. Today we have Santa Clause, face painting and a little entertainment for the children, food and snacks and a little toy for them. Today we had like a hundred children out here at this gathering. What we did, we have in Orange Walk the Orange Walk Down Syndrome Group and we also have the Special Needs Children that are from the St. Peter’s Anglican School so we invited them to participate in today’s event.”
This is the first year the party is being held outside of the Corozal District.
