Staff Report


There will be a spring luncheon at the Turkish Raindrop House at 11:30 am, Saturday, March 23 focusing on immunization solutions for children in developing nations.


The United Nations Association of Oklahoma is organizer of the event at 4444 N Classen Blvd. Parking is available underground and for the handicapped, on street level.


There will be a SHOT@LIFE panel discussion featuring Juliet Abdeljawad, Priya Desai and Charles Swanson moderated by Michael Korenblit.
The United Nations Association’s Shot@Life Campaign aims to advocate, fundraise, and support the fight against global diseases such as measles, malaria, Polio and rotavirus. This campaign seeks to build a grass roots network nationwide, and representatives are designated as “Champions” for the cause. These are individuals who are dedicating their voice, time, and support to stand up for childhood in developing countries.


Champions are leading a grassroots movement by teaching their community about the importance of global vaccines, organizing events to raise funds for United Nations programs on the ground, and meeting with their members of congress to encourage them to expand access to vaccines globally. For $20.00, participants can learn something new such as how to get involved and make a difference in a child’s life.


The Turkish House will be preparing a wonderful meal in a pleasant, comfortable setting. Dishes will include eggplant / meatball kabob, rice and tabouli, vegetarian mixed vegetables, and lentil soup. For dessert, it’s baklava.


Students may apply for a student luncheon scholarship to cover their expense for the lunch and program. Please contact Bill Bryant for more information at 405-760-5322 or e-mail wildbill73107@yahoo.com . Everyone is welcome.
