UN-ESCWA Reaches Out to South Lebanon


Due to a decision by the UN-ESCWA Staff Council to help the victims of the Israeli war on Lebanon last July, Maroun al Ras village was chosen to receive modest humanitarian assistance in the form of 110 woollen blankets.  UN-ESCWA staff donated a total of $980 which were augmented by a $1000 contribution from the Staff Council.


The blankets were presented by Mr. Fawzat Salloum and Mr. Majed Aouad, the Vice-Chair and Treasurer of the Staff Council, to the head of the Maroun al Ras municipality, Mr. Mustafa Alawiyyeh, on 28 December 2006 in the presence of the Deputy Executive Secretary, Mr. Atef Kubursi.
