BCTA celebrates Christmas with underprivileged children
A monotonous saturday morning turned into a lively Christmas celebration when the Baptist Church Trust Association (BCTA) along with Sudeva – a Delhi-based residential football school – came together to spread the message of love and joy among the underpriviledged children and students of Delhi. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal joined in the Christmas celebration and motivated the children present at the ocassion.
"A very happy Christmas to all of you. I am delighted to be a part of this Christmas celebration. I request everyone that whenever we are praying we should pray for our country. If we see Jesus's life, he dedicated his entire life in helping the needy ones. I request all the children present here to learn from his life the lesson of helping the needy ones," said Kejriwal.
2500 students from eight schools (run by BCTA) of Delhi took part in the celebrations. They danced to joyful tunes, sang a carol along with their teachers and gave a benevolent touch to the entire celebration by sharing their joy with underprivileged children of neighbouring areas.
"BCTA along with Sudeva is celebrating the Christmas carnival with students and underprivileged children to spread the real message of love and joy. We also decided to donate 2000 footballs to the Delhi Government out of which we gave some balls to the underprivileged children," said Sumeet Nath, Secretary-Treasurer, BCTA. The celebration ended with a vote of thanks by Sumeet Nath.
