This issue of the AVFCW Newsletter highlights our commitment to the people of Lebanon and the million+ refugees in the country, and our ongoing projects there.
“The project was started in 2013 by all 27 Rotary Clubs of Lebanon. In April 2013 AVFCW Board members Eileen Heasley and Dr. Jeannette Saquet visited Lebanon for the second time to consult about the project. They provided feedback for improvements and suggested strategies to assure sustainability. After their visit Eileen and one of the project leaders, Lina Shehayeb, spent many hours consulting via Skype. Lina attended AVFCW workshop in the fall of 2013. In addition, AVFCW volunteers wrote grants and contributed toward the $3 million project. More than half of the funds have already been raised.”
Also, please note that the preferred method of sending out the newsletter has changed to an e-mail based format, instead of a PDF attachment. (Those that receive it in the post will continue to do so.)
