Every child with a parent in prison needs to know their parent in prison loves them and is thinking of them on Christmas Day.
Your Angel Tree gift makes a crucial heart connection between a child like Saleem and his Dad.
Saleem was just 5 when he first came to Australia. His mum was a Muslim refugee from the Middle East. Unfortunately, his dad ended up in prison.
For several years, an Angel Tree gift was a God-inspired way for him to connect with his father.
Volunteer Margie recalls the first time he received an Angel Tree gift (pre-COVID).
“The connection was so significant for him even at that young age, because he and his mother were so isolated… Certainly, it’s important for Saleem to feel cared for, to know his dad loves him,” says Margie.
