Victory day and Christmas!

Written by Antje on December 24th 2016 17:27

On the 16th of December Bangladesh celebrates ‘victory day’. On this day the bloody 9 month independence war ended. Here in the project we celebrate this with a costume contest for the children. This is the Bangladesh version of old Holland games that everyone participates in and also a cultural program. In this program the children sing the traditional songs and dance. Here are some pictures to give you an idea of this:

The boy in the white clothes and black vest is dressed up as the ‘father of the nation’,
the leader of the independence movement..

Girls wait for their turn to dance.

A combination of different dance groups dancing together.

 

And then it is of course Christmas this coming Sunday. In the hospital we had our Christmas program last Monday.

The front of the hospital was decorated with ballons and a Christmas banner.

We celebrated Christmas by singing several songs and sharing the Christmas message. I was able to share shortly here.

Here I share how amazing it is that God chose to send a helpless baby as Saviour of the world (especially when we see how fragile a newborn baby is).

After acting out the Christmas story which included Mary, Joseph, angels, and shepherds with sheep,
we sang ‘Happy Birthday to You’ for Jesus and there was a huge birthday cake. 
The medical director and surgeon was allowed to cut the cake….

For this special occasion I was dressed in a sari. Here I am with the director of our nursing school.

 

In addition to this celebration Christmas will be celebrated in many other places (in church, with the nurses and with the doctors), it will keep us busy!

I wish you a happy holiday season and God’s blessing for the coming year!
