German charity brings a joyful holiday to Ukrainian kids from poor families
Humanitarian convoy from Germany has brought Christmas gifts to Odesa for children of poor families, kids of migrants and fighters at eastern Ukraine. The collection of presents was done by "Germany's Round Table".
The representative of the German charity, Demian Zhdanov, says: "We have been coming to Ukraine for six years in a row, but it is the first time we have collected such a large number of gifts. We consider it our duty to help people who don't live as good as in Germany."

"Germany's Round Table" has also been bringing presents to kids living in Moldova, Romania and Bulgaria.
