Last Thursday, we held our grand Charity Market for the benefit of the PromoUkraïna association in order to fund the purchase of electric generators for the hospital of Kharkiv.
In a great spirit of solidarity at the approach of the end of the year holidays, many Permanent Representations participated by having stands offering food, drinks and sweets, as well as many traditional decorations and books, of their countries.
This event was a great success thanks to the mobilisation of the agents who came in great number.
Thanks to you, we raised the sum of €16,164.70!
In addition to this sum, many spontaneous donations were made by agents and Permanent Representations, bringing the total amount raised to over €22,000!
We warmly thank all those who worked to make this event and this solidarity drive a success.
We would particularly like to thank the Icelandic Presidency, which chose to support this initiative as soon as it was suggested, as well as the First Lady of Iceland Eliza Reid for her presence, and all the Permanent Representations who took part in the event by having a stand, or by offering prizes for the tombola organised during the event.
The Amicale du Personnel of the Council of Europe would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best for the end of the year 2022 and especially to share with you its best wishes for peace and concord in the year 2023.
Thank you for your mobilization.
