Diss church delivers gifts to children in Kosovo

Members of Diss Christian Community Church visited Kosovo last month to distribute shoeboxes containing gifts.

The visit was part of the Operation Christmas Child appeal where shoeboxes are filled with gifts for needy children overseas.

In six days, the Diss team distributed 1,000 shoeboxes to help the Victory Church in Gjakove.

During their Diss appeal, the community church representatives collected 150 boxes among church colleagues, friends and local schools.

These were filled with crayons, soap, gloves, scarves, dolls and Action Men figures among other gifts.
