Well-attended AGM

About 80 supporters attended Mission East’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Whit Monday to hear about the results of Mission East’s work in 2006. Speakers included Managing Director Kim Hartzner who explained Mission East’s work for disabled children in Armenia.

The AGM was preceded by a sermon at Vorbasse Church in Jutland where Kim Hartzner spoke about contrasts in this world, such as those between Denmark and Armenia, where he is currently stationed with his family. In the church, a collection was taken for Armenia.

The AGM followed at Vorbasse School where Mission East showed pictures of work in Armenia, Afghanistan, and Romania. Those attending heard about the projects in each country and about the cooperation with a range of partners, including authorities in the countries. The example was given of Mission East’s recently developed Armenian special education curricula, which is expected to be used across the whole of Armenia in the long-term.

Peter Blum Samuelsen, Vice Managing Director, presented plans for the year to come, including activities in Nepal. He showed pictures from the remote poor mountain areas where a Mission East team carried out a needs assessment to weigh up the need for help.

Mission East would like to thank those who supported the AGM in Vorbasse. Flowers came from Kragelund Planteskole, Vorbasse Bakery donated the pastries, and a local family donated lunch, fruit, and drinks.
