Every year, SEESHA celebrates Christmas season by gifting 100,000 new clothes to children from downtrodden communities, orphanages and disaster-hit regions.
Clothing is one of the most basic needs for mankind. When it comes to children, hailing from families where they cannot afford new clothes, we see more than just a basic physical need; we see a socio-emotional longing. For such children, their worn out, and sometimes torn clothes, embody them with a lack of confidence and drives them away from seizing opportunities that may bring them attention.
Every year, SEESHA seeks out 100,000 such children and presents them with a set of new clothes to help them face the world a little more confidently.
We invite you to join us in gifting the underprivileged children – the much needed warmth and love wrapped in new sets of Clothing, this joyous christmas season! With a small contribution of just $12 for a new set of clothes, you could have the privilege of bringing happiness and dignity to a needy child.
