Samples of UNWG Charity Projects 2020

 

The UNWG Charity Review Committee 2020 is a team of 42 members who participate in many ways: evaluating projects, proofreading, research and translation.  We received a total of 268 proposals, of which 95 had insufficient documentation or did not meet the necessary criteria. After detailed review and evaluation, a list of 19 projects were submitted and approved by the UNWG General Membership. The total amount of these 19 projects is €127,200. The money was duly disbursed, but there was no ceremony, as the pandemic prohibited large gathering.

Below are a few samples of these projects.
