A Thank You Message from Our President Rosemary
Dear friends, thank you for your generous contributions which came in from all over Ireland in the past months... Marianne Knoetze and I went to visit three International Agencies to make donations on your behalf in July and November.
We donated to €4000 to the Red Cross and their work in Ukraine. Then we went to visit UNICEF to donate €4000 to children in Yemen. Recently, we met with staff members of Christian Aid, Dee and Michael, to hear about their work and we donated €3000 to be allocated to their Christmas Appeal which will help communities and families in Malawi build a more resilient future.
We spent time with a wonderful lady called Martha who runs a support group for women and children who have experienced domestic abuse in Dublin called The Wellspring of Life Ireland and we donated €500 on your behalf.
It was a privilege to make personal contact with people who are working on the ground to improve and resource the lives of those who suffer in situations of famine, conflict, oppression and violence.
Your contributions are making a significant difference and Marianne and I were merely the conduits for your compassion and generosity.
Many thanks again,
Rosemary Lavelle (President WDP Ireland)
