Big things are coming: Recap from our 2016 AGM
On November 6th, IDRF convened for its 32nd Annual General Meeting where board members, staff and volunteers discussed the year’s achievements, hopes and challenges.
Our dedicated and engaged board members nominated and elected a new slate of board members, including our new board member, Mina Silarti, a distinguished philanthropist.
The event also went over the financial statements from the past year and we were pleased to note that IDRF is experiencing another year of good financial health, in large part to the exceptional fiscal stewardship of our board and staff.
IDRF staff also provided presentations from our programs, communications and fundraising teams that discussed all of the exciting things we are planning, including our Dignity Tour events, Winterization and Girls of East Africa campaigns. These campaigns and events are designed to raise critical funds for winter supplies, water and agricultural resources for the people of Gaza and East African region, respectively.
We sincerely thank all of our board members, IDRF members, staff and especially our donors for attending and supporting IDRF. We look forward to next year’s AGM where we will be able to provide another update on our efforts to provide health, hope and dignity to vulnerable people at home and abroad.
