Santa’s Helpers is a group of five children aged 13 to 18, from Sombor, Serbia, who has been collecting gift packs and donating them to vulnerable children during Christmas and New Year’s for several years. However, during 2020 with the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, something changed.

The children behind the project, all active at the Sombor Educational Center (SEC), were motivated to initiate change in their local community in terms of ending child poverty.
