10 Welfare Homes (And Counting) To Give Gifts To, And Their Wishlist

We could all use a little holiday cheer this year. The season of Christmas is a time for giving and receiving for many, but for some people festivities are set to be a difficult time due to the ongoing pandemic. 

Simple acts of kindness are the best way to spread cheer. So, if you’re considering supporting a local community, Wiki Impact contacted more than 10 welfare homes and found out what they need this season and in the coming year. Their wishlist is varied and unique – from daily necessities to monetary support. 

Make this season a special one for these precious ones as you reach out and make a difference in a small or big way.
