Give a gift this Christmas

Would you like to send a gift to a child in Ukraine thisChristmas?  2020 has been a challenging year for us all and we would love to remind the children in Ukraine that they are not alone, that we are praying for them. You can make an enormous difference to a child’s life by sending them a unique gift, just for them.

With many parents out of work this year due to the virus, most children will not be expecting gifts as for many families, even meeting their basic needs is a struggle. UCM would like to send a gift to up to 700 children who will be attending theChristmas services held by our partner churches this season. You, your children, their school or Sunday school could bless such children.

It is really simple. All you need to do is purchase a gift that weighs less that 500g and fits into an A4 envelope, write a simple note inside and send it to us beforeNovember 27th. You can then follow us on facebook or Instagram to see updates of the gifts being delivered.

Step 1: Choose from one of the age groups below so that we can send appropriate gifts.
