HIGHLIGHTS DECEMBER 2018 | E-Newsletter Issue #12
A word from the President: A Year that changed many Stories!
Welcome to the last edition of HIGHLIGHTS for this year.

Last year, we had our best year ever . We reached out openly to our stakeholders and to the community. The result was a huge increase in the number of services delivered and the beneficiaries supported.

As we come to the end of another year, it gives us time to reflect on the past one, of which Makhzoumi Foundation teams have had very busy and successful times. Some of the achievements were new project s implemented, new agreements with partners for more community empowerment and pioneering activities that emanate from our strategic objectives.

Here’s ia glance at some of our achievements. It is fair enough to say that all Makhzoumi Foundation staff are very proud of the many successes and accomplishments that they all have experienced and implemented.

We would like to wish all of you luck and happiness as you enter 2019 and we hope you read this issue and do let us know about your comments because your input is much appreciated.
