International Awareness Initiatives

Our committee’s theme for 2016-2017 is “We SEE You!”  This simple but powerful message expresses our empathy and committed support for our brothers and sisters around the globe who live in impoverished conditions without adequate nourishment, education, medical treatment and basic sustenance.  Specific activities are:

  • World Vision Sponsor-a-Child Program in a Third World country
  • RED Power Convos, a World AIDS Day initiative to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS in our community
  • RED Ribbon Bingo to provide financial support and onesies for infants, children and mothers treated in the HIV/AIDS program at St. Damien Pediatric Hospital in Tabarré, Haiti
  • Medical Supplies to the diabetes treatment program at Rand Memorial Hospital in Grand Bahamas
