Mr. & Mrs. Christop & Madeleine Siffert from Switzerland came to St. Dominic Savio Boys Home this morning and spent some time with us. Fr. Godfrey D'Souza the Rector was in touch with them via email as they wanted to send some gift items for poor deserving children and youngsters. They had collected a lot of stuff such as clothes, stationery, toys etc from the children of Switzerland.
They came with their little daughter and young son and they were entertained by our yougsters with a welcome song and a couple of christmas carols that the brass band played. They enjoyed mingling with the youngsters and at the end of their short but sweet visit gave some chocolates to the boys.
They also brought with them a beautiful set of football uniforms of the Swiss National Team and a number of footballs for our youngsters. We are indeed very grateful to them for their generosity and sharing.
Fr. Godfrey in his welcome introduced the Sifferts to the boarders and thanked them for all the trouble they took to bring so many gifts for children in Mumbai.
