German woman brings Christmas gifts for Kashmiri kids
Plans to give more on Dec 25
Srinagar, Dec 8: Gifts from a German woman ahead of Christmas brought cheers for a group of schoolchildren whom she Saturday took for a trip to Sri Pratap Singh Museum in the City.
“Christmas makes December a month for giving, and that’s just what I did today,” said Karen Klug, a "cultural activist" from Germany, who organized the “gift sharing” event at the museum.
Klug gave away gifts to around 40 schoolchildren. “These gifts are from German kids to Kashmiri kids with love. It also gives a message of peace and teaches children the importance of sharing in life,” she added.
After having a round up of the historic museum, the kids were excited to grab gifts delicately wrapped for them in red cloth bags.
She plans to give away more gifts to children in the coming days as she says: “It’s better to give than to receive.” “Everyone should learn to play Santa to the little children especially to those in need. It gives them hope and strength to be satisfied in life,” Klug said.
The German woman has received a lot of gifts for the children in Kashmir.
“I am planning a similar event in Valley close to Christmas day. It would be possible only when the container holding gift items is cleared from the Customs Department,” she said.
