A skipping rope brings health and hope

A teenager in Guinea, West Africa, has hope for a healthy future because of a simple, gift-filled shoebox packed by a Canadian like you.

Just 14 years old, the young girl was experiencing medical complications and heavy weight gain. The doctor’s remedy was to skip rope, but the teenager’s family couldn’t access the simple item-until the local church arranged an Operation Christmas Child shoebox distribution in her community.

Inside a specially-wrapped shoebox gift just for her, the girl was overjoyed to find the skipping rope she desperately needed. Even more than a toy, this gift offered her hope and a future, all because of people like you!
