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."



Demian Zhdanov, highlights that the German charity is planning to arrange humanitarian convoy next year as well. Last year, the charity brought 16,000 gifts for Ukrainian children.




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

Round Table is an international organization for men, which was founded in Norwich, in 1927. The club frequently adopts charitable and fundraising initiatives.
