Christmas gift campaign

Every year, tens of thousands of people from Switzerland give presents to people in need in Eastern and Southeastern Europe. The Christmas parcels from Switzerland trigger a gratitude and joy that can hardly be put into words. In addition to the precious contents, the gifts bring hope to thousands of recipients. For people living below the subsistence level, for the sick, the disabled, the lonely and for people on the fringes of society, they have priceless value. And last but not least, the gifts are a sign of practical, Christian love. 

Only thanks to you
Hundreds of churches, schools and organizations and thousands of individuals and families put together more than 100,000 Christmas parcels every year in November. The collection and distribution of the gifts is organized by AVC in cooperation with three other Christian aid organizations.
