NEXT MONTHLY MEETING TUESDAY 7th of February 2017
We would like to wish you and your partner, family and friends a very happy, healthy and successful 2017.
The next club event is now our New Year’s reception at Huize Happaert on 16th of January 2017.
On the 7th of Feburary our speaker will talk about: “WEST AFRICA – EBOLA CRISIS 2014 – 2015”.
The presentation will focus on how the World Food Programme (WFP) worked closely together with the World Health Organisation and Artsen zonder Grenzen in order to contain the Ebola outbreak becoming pandemic. The Ebola virus, one of the most contagious viruses known spread in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia claiming some 11.000 lives. WFP set up a gigantic logistic sea, air and road transport system in order to bring medical supplies and food to the most remote locations in the three affected countries. WFP involved itself in building some 30 Ebola treatment Units ( field hospitals) and quarantine stations for discharged patients and their families. The involvement of WFP in the field of logistics was second to none in containing the spread of the Ebola disease.
We are planning a visit to the “Brouwerij De Koninck” later in February, further details will follow in the February newsletter nr 222.
