Christmas Comes to Kids at the Litoměřice Children’s Home

Kids open gifts from the Embassy community members.

On December 16, 2014 community members from the U.S. Embassy distributed holiday gifts at the Litoměřice Children’s Home outside of Prague. Since 1958 the Children’s Home has provided care for orphans and children whose families cannot care for them.

For the past several years the U.S. Embassy has worked with the home’s staff to determine one special thing each child would want for Christmas and to make that wish come true through personal donations from U.S. Embassy employees and their families.

This year the community provided the 23 children living at the home with gifts ranging from a toy kitchen and tricycle for toddlers to a MP3 player and basketball team sweatshirt for teens.
