Merry Christmas and Happy 2018

Dear friends,

Christmas is coming and I hope that all of you and your families will spend it in happiness and in good health.

Unfortunately, however, not everyone will be able to spend a peaceful Christmas! I think, above all, of refugee children without parents who, for different reasons, are in our countries and in our cities.

However, I am sure that these children, if not all but at least some of them, will be able to spend a more peaceful Christmas due the commitment that all Kiwanians in Europe are dedicating to the Service Happy Child and to the other Service.

So, to all of you, and to your loved ones, I send my best wishes for a Christmas of joy and satisfaction, seeing that all the Service projects was realized for the less fortunate children.

Looking also to the next year that is starting, there are many challenges that await us, many indeed, are the children to help! But we, members of the Kiwanis, aren’t afraid; we will face all the challenges and we will overcome them because Together we can.

Merry Christmas, therefore, and happy and prosperous 2018!
