“That was the first time I had received a gift in my entire life.” – Désiré shares about his shoebox through Operation Christmas Child.
Désiré Nana, a recipient of an Operation Christmas Child (OCC) shoebox as a child in Burkina Faso, now a disciple-making leader who serves as an ambassador for OCC. Since 1993, the Samaritan’s Purse project, Operation Christmas Child, has collected and delivered more than 135 million gift-filled shoeboxes to children in more than 150 countries and territories. Shoebox gifts are collected in the U.S., Australia, Finland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Japan, New Zealand, Canada, Spain, and the U.K. More than 500,000 volunteers worldwide, with more than 150,000 of those in the United States, are involved in collecting, shipping, and distributing shoebox gifts.
