Event organiser Yvonne (Kiwanis) with guest speaker Dr. Assil Russell (ICARE) and Amir Ali.
ICARE's founder Dr. Assil Russell had the honour of
speaking at the Kiwanis Club NewZealand-South Pacific Convention introducing the audience to the plight of Iraqi children and the work of ICARE in treating impoverished and needy children in Iraq. The club is an international non profit who work to do wonderful things to service the local and international community and in particular women and children. Kiwanis like ICARE is a global organisation of volunteers changing the world one child and one community at a time. A big thank you to Yvonne Joynes for the invitation to share our story with Kiwanis and thank you to the generous donation from Kiwanis towards our Sponsor a Smile project.
DARE 2 CARE
"The power of "WE" is the understanding that a piece of string will
never be as strong as a piece of rope made up of many strings.
By working together we can create change. If you substitute I for WE,
ICARE becomes WE Care and Illness becomes WEllness".
