Christmas is a time of love, sharing and giving. MicroCharity is inviting you to celebrate Christmas with orphan children.

You can sponsor gifts for an orphan child with Rs. 500/-. Our target is to bring gifts to at least 100 children from multiple orphanages. The gifts include toys and play items and other gifts as suggested by the orphanages according to their requirements.

About 20 million children, about 4% of the population of India are orphan. Of them, parents of only 0.3% children have died and rest have been abandoned. Let’s make this Christmas celebration meaningful by bringing smiles to a few of these children.
