Congress Friday Briefing - CWUHA Project, Fri 21st July

12 Jul 2017

Please find attached flyer for the July 'Congress Friday Briefing'.

This briefing is being provided by Jimmy O’Connor and Pascal Connolly from the CWU, who are kindly giving their time to speak of their involvement in the CWUHA project. This project, the Communications Workers’ Union Humanitarian Aid, is now over 21 years old and has brought humanitarian aid to many people across different countries in Eastern Europe.   

Jimmy and Pascal will outline their experience of getting the convoys to the various destinations, the trials and tribulations on the way (and the fun, no doubt!), and of course their immense satisfaction of seeing their efforts and those of the donors making a difference.

Their story was also the subject of a TV programme in 2012 (‘Delivering a Special Wish’) which covered the Lithuania convoy.

Please join us on Friday 21st July at 10.30am  in the Congress Offices, 31-32 Parnell Square, Dublin 1 – refreshments provided.
