Update on Book Drive

25 Feb 2022 17:42 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

On behalf of my daughter, I would like to thank all of the members of the AWCB chapter for generous book donations. This was in support of Amelia for her CAS project with AIS, which was a Book drive to support the English Immersion School in Aywaille. A school destroyed in the great flood of Walloon region.

As you remember the horrible floods this past July 2021, this school, which sits on the riverfront in Awaille, took on the brunt of the flood. The flood wall for the town gave way right in front of the school. Causing massive damage to the classrooms of the school.

When the flood water receded, the school was informed the building was insured, but not the contents of the classrooms.

Upon hearing of the school situation, Amelia, being an avid reader, wanted to help rebuild the school's library. From August of last year till Christmas, she was able to collect over 420 English books for the school library.

Thank you again for your support of the children of Awaille and Amelia.
