Christmas is a time when the lonely feel most lonely. It is also a time when hunger pains seem to hurt the most. With a view to making life a little easier for our struggling friends over the festive season, we host special Christmas Functions throughout the country. Last year, more than half a million desperately needy souls attended these special Christmas functions. Originally launched in 1994, these joyous events mean the world to the less-fortunate, the lonely, the aged, and the homeless.
