Children at the International Center receive gifts from Santa

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Bowling green's Flora Templeton Stuart has partnered with the International Center to bring Christmas gifts to refugee children on Tuesday morning.

The executive director of the International Center, Albert Mbanfu, says this day was a special one for the children at the center.

Each child received a backpack full of goodies and they even got to meet Santa!

Although the event was a little chaotic, Mbanfu says it went perfectly.

"I was so excited for these kids because many of them have never had the opportunity to experience Santa," Mbanfu said. "These refugee kids have spent most of their time in refugee camps and have never had the opportunity to receive wonderful gifts like they did today."

Mbanfu says today will be a day these children will never forget.
