Jacksonelle is an outgoing fella who likes fixing things and dreams of becoming a mechanic one day.  He arrived at the HOLD the Children Home in September 2013.  The Home was able to admit him following several former residents being reunited with families.  Jacksonelle is from a nearby city of Mole Saint Nicholas.  Having been abandoned he was found by authorities and brought to the HOLD Home.

Christmas for children living in extreme poverty is typically just another day of struggling to survive.  Expectations are low and there isn't much celebration going on.  However, you can help provide a special Christmas Celebration for your sponsor child’s school.  This gives the children something to look forward to as Christmas approaches.  Contributions for “Christmas Celebration” can be made through November 20.  When donating online here, be sure to include your child’s tracking number in the comments box.
