January 2006 - Party at Soup Kitchen
Christmas Celebration at Soup Kitchen (All photographs courtesy of Robert Davidson, London, UK) Feliz Natal for Abadiania - A grand celebration was held for the people of Abadiania on a brilliant sunny Saturday just before Christmas at the recently opened Casa da Sopa in downtown Abadiania. The fest included fun times for all, clowns, jugglers, cotton candy, refreshments, snacks and lunch, and gifts for all who came. There were many smiles to brighten the day even more, and of course a special lightness of heart by the celebrants.
The celebration was attended by several thousand happy souls. The feeling of joy, love and happiness was shared by all who attended.
Many volunteers as well as professional staff organized and operated the event. Many people donated time, money, gifts and labor to make the event happen. Medium JoÃ£o and our brother Martin Mosqueira were especially generous of their time and financial support, as were many visitors, and the regular staff and volunteers at both the soup kitchen and at the Casa Dom Inacio.
A special thanks to event photographer Robert Davidson of London UK for his time, skill and great photos of the event.
