Happy New Year!
The festive season might have come to an end, however it hasn’t quite fizzled out as we share with you some pictures sent to us from the organisers of the Sai Baba centre in Haiti we donated the money from our fundraisers to! The £267 UALACS raised sent via Western Union last month (converted to $396), provided gifts and stationary to 350 children (most of them are still living in camps after to 2010 Earthquake) as well as lunch during the New Year children’s program the centre organised on behalf of UALACS!
A massive THANK YOU to everyone who bought a raffle ticket, chipotle burrito, or any of our fundraising items – you helped make this happen! #ProudStudentMoment
Here’s a message from the Sai Baba Centre co-ordinator, Shanti Paudel:
“Happy New Year… Thank You very much for your great support. We provided 200 gifts and stationary items for the children. Yesterday we had a very good children program here, we invited 200 children but there was more than 350 children in Sai baba Centre it was so difficult to control the the children but we managed the program very well. Thank you all UAL African Caribbean Society UALACS…”
