Operation Christmas Child has for the first time linked up UK supporters over the web with the children in Belarus who received their shoeboxes.
Each year, over a million shoeboxes filled with Christmas gifts make their way to needy children all over the world.
People in the UK who donated a shoebox had the opportunity to watch via a live link up as the children opened up their boxes at a social centre and a church in Belarus.
Samaritan's Purse Volunteer Communications & Development Manager Ruth Jones, who was part of the OCC distribution team in Belarus said: "This was the first time we have attempted to run webcasts from Belarus and we were not sure how they would be received.
"But they were a great success with hundreds of people tuning in to watch. Viewers watched as the children opened their shoeboxes with cries of joy. It was very moving."
Michelle Pannell, a blogger, was on the Operation Christmas Child distribution team and introduced the webcasts.
She wrote: "I have had such an amazing time here in Belarus. We have experienced so much in such a little time. It was a real whistle-stop tour of this great place.
"The culture is so different to anything I have experienced before and I have been really impacted by the place and the people I have been privileged to travel with.
"My eyes have been opened to new opportunities, ways to achieve things and avenues to explore."
