UNICEF Presentation to the PWFC
(Written by Monica for LFT—The Magazine of the PWFC)
The PWFC was invited, as a thank you for our donations, to attend an informational meeting with
UNICEF on June 12th, 2003. Katie McKenna and Kate Weber, two of the NGO UNICEF
representatives, were warm and gracious with their time as well as with their thanks. Peter
Wingfield and his family, as well as all members of the PWFC, were given this very classy plaque
as a thank you on behalf of its contribution to the AIDS/HIV Orphans program. The plaque
The Peter Wingfield Fan Club
in grateful recognition
of the love and compassion demonstrated
toward the world’s children especially those children orphaned by
U.S. Fund for UNICEF June 12, 2003
There were many relevant facts discussed at this meeting. Kate and Katie both had a lot of info
they wanted to make sure we knew about as we were curious how the donated money was being utilized. The 7 PWFC members that attended had
questions as well. I had a question posed by a club member that I asked that led to an intriguing answer. The member’s question was whether there
were other ways to help AIDS/HIV orphans other than with monetary donations. The answer, as well as one of the more interesting aspects of the
timing of this meeting, was the fact that the UNICEF program is on the cusp of launching an advocacy/educational push in this country and abroad.
Not only do they want to actively engage members of the community through outreach programs but the members of UNICEF want to create an
effective branch of their organization dedicated to engage people who are not aware of the problems right here at home. This is one reason Kate
and Katie were so delighted in our contribution and our interest.
Of course none of this would have been initiated without Peter and Carolyn’s wish to give back a little of what they consider their good fortune. And
it is our good fortune to be involved in a club that emulates their generosity.
