From our ANI Correspondent
Guwahati, Dec 22: Christmas season brought cheer to street children in Guwahati as social activists gave them food, clothes and enjoyment.
Preety Sangma, a social activist said the aim of the event was to bring some sunshine in an otherwise gloomy existence of the neglected children.
"We thought it will be good gesture for these children so that we can give them love. They are unwanted and unprivileged. So, we thought like we can give the love of Jesus to them," said Preety.
The children said they thoroughly enjoyed the outing.
"People treated us so well. We played, joked really enjoyed it," said Prem Darjee, a child.
The venue was Christ Church at Panbazar in Guwahati. Established in 1844, Christ Church is the oldest in north eastern India.
Most of the children, living in nearby slums, eke out a living as rag pickers.
