Grand Master MW Luis A Baez-Delgado selected “Brücke nach Kyiv” – “Bridge to Kyiv” as the charity project for the ACGL 2023-2024.
The “Bridge to Kyiv” association is a non-profit organization and supports people in need, especially children and large families.
Previously focusing on families that are in financial distress,in a low-income trap and/or suffered from the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl, the focus has now broadened up due to the raging conflict in Ukraine.
The goal is to help people to help themselves; people are encouraged to help improve their situation. The association “Bridge to Kyiv e. V.” emerged from the “Munich families help Kyiv families” initiative, which has existed since 1994, and has ensured that donations are managed and forwarded to Kyiv.
The association is run on a voluntary basis. 100% of the donations go directly to the people of Ukraine. The unavoidable management fees are financed from separate funds.
Grand Master MW Luis A Baez-Delgado selected “The George Washington Masonic National Memorial Association” “Memorial Dedicatory Tree & Bench program” as the charity project for the ACGL 2022-2023. The goal of this project is to contribute to both the Tree & Bench in the name of the American Canadian Grand Lodge. As the Grand Master said let us push this charity to complete the sums needed for a Tree & Bench as soon as possible. That we can have them installed prior to the conference.
This great memorial to the Mason George Washington, was built with donations of the Grand Lodges within the United States of America and many other Masonic related organizations. The start of construction was 5 June 1922.
To commemorate the start of construction and celebrate the centennial of the laying of the cornerstone for this building, “The Conference Grand Masters of North America” will host their annual conference. A CORNERSTONE CEREMONY reenactment and parade were the highlights of this years convention.
The American Canadian Grand Lodge as a member of this conference was represented by our Grand Master and accompanied by members of his elected line. The GM is proud, that his Charity program was a success and the dedicatory Granite Bench was in place when the Grand Master attended the conference and dedication ceremony in February 2023.
Thanks for your help!!!
