FCCA project together with CPA’s Christmas celebration for 200 children in Curaçao For 18th consecutive year

CPAWILLEMSTAD - This past Wednesday, December 5th, the Florida Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA), together with Curaçao Ports Authority (CPA), had the pleasure to organize for the 18th consecutive year the so called “FCCA Holiday gift project”. Initially the FCCA offers to all countries affiliated with one of their cruise organizations, the opportunity to make a maximum of 200 less fortunate children happy with a Christmas present, accompanied by entertainment by Santa Claus and by offering a drink and something to eat.

This event took place at the Mathey Wharf and this year the children of the Foundation “Klein Jeruzalem” (Little Jerusalem) got a turn. This foundation not only has the responsibility to care for children with a terminal or chronic illness, but also cares for approximately 200 less fortunate families. These families are divided amongst residences located in Banda Bou, but also in the Fuik area.

The Minister of Economic Development, Mr. Steven Martina, was also present to express his gratitude and in particular to the crew of the cruise ship Caribbean Princess of Princess Cruises for the beautiful gesture, because, no matter how you turn it, the members of the crew of the ship choose, during their stay in Curaçao, in their free time, to, together with the Santa Claus of the ship, help with giving the children invited to this event, their presents. In this case the crew members came prepared with their materials to paint the faces of the children present and with several Christmas decorations.
