International fundraising evening 19 May 2022
Carwyn Jones, Chair of the charity Size of Wales gave a presentation on the important work of this small charity making a big difference in the world. Deforestation is a significant issue and accounts for 20% of the worlds carbon dioxide emissions which compares to 2.5% made by flying.
We learnt about the charities work in tropical forests across the world where indigenous communities are supported to grow more trees and develop sustainable farming and livelihoods. Some of this work such as in Uganda is supporting women in communities to develop skills and sustainable practices that change these communities and support families.
Cardiff East Rotary was delighted to present Carwyn Jones with a £400 donation towards the important work of Size of Wales. More information about their work can be found on their website SizeofWales.org.uk
