Message from the President of the UNWG

 

Dear Members,

Did you enjoy the delicious chocolates you bought from Bilqueece during the December Coffee Morning? Those wonderful chocolates helped us raise more than 1,200.00 CHF, which in turn increased the 2018 Bazaar revenue, reaching a total of 222,275.87 CHF. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank his Excellency, the Permanent Representative of Italy to the United Nations, Ambassador Gian Lorenzo Cornado, for donating all those delicious chocolates to the UNWG.

As we are approaching the end of the year and celebrating the holiday season, inspired by the great success of our 2018 Bazaar, I wish to extend my heartfelt congratulations to you all for your dedication and efforts leading to this great achievement and marvellous result.

The 2018 Bazaar revenue coupled with the Children’s Walk revenue, amounting this year to 45,000.00 CHF, will undoubtably enable us to sponsor numerous charitable projects.

Lastly, I wish to draw your attention to the UNWG Annual Luncheon, which has been rescheduled to January 18, 2019. Our Guest Speaker is Ms. Michelle Bachelet, the newly appointed UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and former President of Chile. Therefore, I would like to remind all our members that registration for this significant annual event will take place at the Villa Monday and Thursday afternoons, from January 3, 2019 to January 16, 2019. You may also register during the January 8, 2019 Coffee Morning.

Best regards and sincere wishes to all for a splendid and joyful holiday season and a prosperous New Year 2019!

Nehad Sukayri
