CWU Humanitarian Aid Christmas card
The purpose of this LTB is to inform Branches that the Union’s charity, CWUHA has, this year, commissioned a special Christmas card for the purpose of fundraising for their various projects in Eastern Europe, Africa and the UK.
The cards are priced at £10 per pack of ten and the proceeds will go towards the charity’s 2018 projects, which include the continued funding of teachers and pupils for the CWUHA-supported school in Tanzania; phase 2 of the Phoenix Centre Project for disabled children; our third annual football tournament for disadvantaged children; the refurbishment of a rundown children’s hospital ward and furnishing bedrooms and supplying sports equipment for a large orphanage in Moldova that cares for 500 children.
In addition the CWUHA will be looking at ways to continue their support for Syrian refugees and offering holidays of a lifetime to underprivileged children.
The CWUHA projects require continued financial assistance and they rely on the generosity of branches and their members. I would urge all branches to affiliate to the CWUHA and encourage you and your members to affiliate as individuals. Please see the attached affiliation forms.
The Charity would like to thank and credit David Gibbon from the Durham County Amal Branch for the amazing photo of an artic fox and the CWU Communications Department for designing and producing the card.
