Four women and two men make up the current Board of Governors (Junta Directiva) of our Emmanuel Children's Home. In this first month of the year we wanted the Board members to have a celebratory meal together along with their spouses and the three care team members. In a relaxed, informal atmosphere we spent an agreeable time together sharing our stories, experiences and concerns, outside our normal time working together as a team each week.
Our Chair and Vice-Chair have the responsibility of representing our organisation and officially signing all the association's legal documents. Our Secretary is charged with drawing up the minutes of the association's Board and General meetings. The Treasurer has the important task of keeping our organisation's accounts. The other Board members provide support for all the different administrative, promotional and representational activities. And together they supervise the work of the care team and watch over the general running of the Emmanuel Children's Home.
We are very grateful for all the Board members' work. It's a very important and special type of volunteer work that we should value and support. In the photo are Fina, Juan, Paquita and Ana Maria, with their spouses, and the married couple Antoni and Carme. The efforts of every governor, carer, volunteer, helper, donator... are all highly valuable contributions which, added together, make up the help we provide to the children in our care. Thank you, Board members, for all your hard work.
