New Year's Eve with the homeless

4. Янв 2013

It was attended by approximately 150 people who were served first with a snack, fruits and then a warm meal. The celebration took place in a large dining hall of a dormitory of Saint Vincent in Ljubljana. It was nicely decorated so that the festive feeling was even greater among all who were present. Throughout the evening the game of bingo took place: the first one who won a ‘bingo’ got a bicycle and the others were given smaller practical gifts. But before that we played a quiz. The goal was to discover a motto that was the guideline of the past year and the New Year’s Eve: BUILDING A HOME – TOGETHER. In fact, the homeless and the volunteers are building a community by cooperation and acceptance of each other. But not only that: an actual home is being built in the region of Primorska in the north-west part of Slovenia. The work is done by both, the homeless and the volunteers. Last minutes before the arrival of the New Year we watched a video of everything that was going on in the past year: trips, workshops and all the work done when building a home. When the clock struck midnight we wished each other a plenitude of blessing in the year of 2013.
