Children like six year old Ella really need our help this Christmas. Ella was recently placed in foster care, having grown up in an environment of violence and fear. Her mother’s boyfriend was regularly violent. Ella had witnessed beatings so shocking that her mother had to be hospitalised.
For children like Ella, Christmas can be distressing. Family violence incidents increase around Christmas. For Ella, Christmas had been a terrifying time of year. For children who have missed out on so much, a special Christmas gift sends a message that someone cares. Ella loves painting and craft, and she has told Lucinda that she can’t remember getting a Christmas present before.
