B’nai B’rith Uruguay made a donation of 850 blankets to the Ministry of Social Development on June 29 to help those in need during a very cold winter in Uruguay.
The donation was received by Minister of Social Development Martin Lema and Under Secretary Andrea Brugman. The minister thanked B’nai B’rith for its ongoing support of those in need over its 85 years of social work in Uruguay.
B’nai B’rith was represented by Acting President Bernardo Ejgemberg, Co-Chairs Andrés Yusupoff and Branca Gerwer, President of the Community Action Committee Tania Breitfeld and Director of Latin American Affairs Eduardo Kohn.
The Ministry also thanked B’nai B’rith on Twitter, and the donation was widely covered in written and broadcast media.
