Letter: Co-founder of Haiti charity to speak in Langley

Editor: She is 24, and straight out of high school she had gone to Haiti. For five years she has helped transform the lives of a great many street children in that troubled land.

Her name is Morgan Wienberg, co-founder of Little Footprints, Big Steps.

On Thursday evening March 3, she will speak at the Rotary Club of Langley about her work reuniting Haitian children with their families and partnering with agencies to provide protection, education, training and health care.

Morgan now lives in Haiti but she will visit B.C. in March to receive the Governor General’s Meritorious Service Cross.

She has been honoured with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, Governor General of Canada Academic Awards, Yukon Commissioner Award, recognized in Washington, DC as a finalist for the Berger-Marks Foundation for Young Women Impacting Social Justice and was awarded the Rotary International Paul Harris Fellowship Award for Humanitarian Impact.

She was a keynote speaker at the 2013 United Nations Youth Assembly. Perhaps some of your readers would like to hear this lady speak about how she mobilized assistance for our brothers and sisters.

The Rotary Club of Langley invites those interested to come to our meeting on  March 3 for Morgan’s presentation at 6:50 p.m. Those who wish to have dinner ($25) at 6:15, please RSVP by phone at 604-635-4410.
