It’s Christmas season again! World Vision Philippines is very excited to share with you a gift-giving tradition that they have been doing for the last 13 years!
Since 2005, children have been receiving a simple Noche Buena gift from generous sponsors through World Vision’s Noche Buena Campaign. A Noche Buena gift contains children’s favorites like spaghetti, fruit cocktails, and other canned good delights for an entire family.
Beyond the feast and food on the table, your Noche Buena gift is hoped to remind children and families about God’s love and goodness to all of us.
In the words of 17-year-old Emmanuel, a sponsored child in Isabela who has been receiving Noche Buena gifts since he was 10, “Ang importante is yung essence ng Christmas. Yung tipong kahit gaano ka-minimal or simple yung handa namin ay sabay-sabay kaming kakain. Yung tipong kahit gaano ka katulog ay talagang gigisingin ka nila para lang i-celebrate yung Noche Buena tsaka yung pagsalubong sa Pasko.”
Another Noche Buena child-recipient, Hilarey, shared, “Maganda po sa pakiramdam na nagsasama-sama kaming kumakain tuwing Pasko.”
And it is World Vision’s hope that this year, you can join them in spreading the joy of celebrating God’s love to children and their families.
For every P1,000.00 you give to the World Vision Noche Buena Campaign, you are giving a Noche Buena gift to a sponsored child and to another kid who is waiting to be sponsored.

World Vision Philippines will be accepting donations until December 14, 2018.
“Thank you for making this Christmas another joy-filled celebration. It is our prayer that as our partner in this ministry, you would keep going the extra mile in letting children feel how much God loves them. May this gift-giving opportunity also be a way for you to build and strengthen the relationship you have with your sponsored child. Have a blessed and memorable Christmas season!” says Rommel Fuerte, Executive Director.
