This year one of the little houses at the German Christmas Market is collecting funds for refugee children. At the stall one can buy jewellery, cards and toys, crafted personally by children seeking asylum in Bulgaria. The prices are symbolical and the goal is to collect funds for classes in Bulgarian and English, as well as courses in art and computers. With the collected money, refugee children will visit the Rila monastery or another landmark in Bulgaria. Only on Saturday the smiley volunteers from the Refugee Project by Caritas Sofia have collected 250 lv for the youngsters at the Ovcha Kupel centre. On the 12th December they organize a workshop for handmade garlands and Christmas tree decorations. – Monitor newspaper
