Did you know that half of the world's population who are affected by poverty, are children? Or that roughly 100 million children in developing countries are severely underweight?
Baldasso Cortese understand just how fortunate we are, and have a strong social conscious culture within the practice, actively involving in many supporting activities. This year, with leadership from Gabby, Vern and Yau, we are pleased to announce our participation in 'Operation Christmas Child'.
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse, an international relief organisation. Their mission is to provide children around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items and local school supplies. Samaritan's Purse ships these gifts to children affected by war, poverty, natural disasters, famine and disease. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has delivered these shoeboxes to over 146 million children in more than 100 countries.
Our hearts are extremely warm by the generosity our staff have shown. Not only did we fill a box for each gender and age group, but we finished up with an additional NINE boxes, bringing our total to a fantastic FIFTEEN!
