|IBERIA @ Columbia University in the City of New York|
Date: October 4, 2004
Attendance: 400 aprox.
Activity description: Iberia co-organized with the Community of San Egidio a fundraising for DREAM.
The Community of Sant Egidio is well known for the great job done in the Mozambique peace process, and the date was chosen to commemorate the Independence Day of Mozambique.
DREAM (Drug Resource Enhancement against AIDS and Malnutrition) is a control, prevention, and treatment program to fight HIV infection in sub-Saharan countries
Project DREAM aims to combat AIDS and malnutrition. Project DREAM places central importance on the person and on each and every life. The program was created with the objective of bringing prevention and therapy together, in the conviction that we must treat as well as prevent, gaining life for as many people as possible.
We reserved the College Walk to do a Bake Sale. Iberia members and members of the Community of Sant Egidio prepared the bakery for the sale. From 9.00 am to 5.00 pm, the tables where in College Walk. The activity was a great success: $1500 were raised and a lot of members of the Columbia Community stopped at the tables to learn about the project and do their contribution.
