Christmas celebration in the SOS Children's Village

Children showcased their acting, dancing and singing abilities for our friends and donors. Joining them on stage were various guests who took part in this year’s Christmas celebration in the SOS Children's Village Lekenik.

During the traditional Christmas celebration in the Hermann Gmeiner Social Center, our children performed their holiday program to the delight of 200 friends and donors of SOS Children's Village Croatia. Mrs. Mariza Katavić, the president of the Association, welcomed everyone and thanked all our co-workers for their work. Members of the Kolovrat Society from Lekenik opened the entertainment portion of the program and then our children took everyone on a tour of their magical world of acting, dancing and singing. The first ones to break the ice were Little Bells, a group of our children from the playroom. Their performance was followed by several recitals and dance numbers. A girl from the Brestje Elementary School gave a wonderful poetry reading as a gift to her friends in the Village. Our young violin players provided musical accompaniment to the celebration, and our guests got so carried away with some of the tunes they played that they joined in the singing. The highlight of this year’s celebration was a sneak preview of the play Fiddler on the Roof, directed by Rusmir Agačević and performed by the children form the SOS Children's Village Lekenik Little Fairy Tale Theatre. The plays focuses on the popular, Oscar-winning movie of the same name that was shot 40 years ago in Lekenik and the surrounding area. Among the people who came to see a short segment from the play, which is slated to open in January 2012, was rabbi Pinhas Zaklas. Slip, a band from Zagreb that plays traditional Irish music, was the final act of the evening.

We would like to thank everyone who took part in the preparation of this wonderful celebration. Thanks to all the guests, friends and donors who support our work.
