Reach Out to Asia Walk the World WFP

Dear all,

As some of you are aware, ROTA has been supporting the World Food Programme (WFP) with the Doha chapter of Walk the World. It is an opportunity to support another good cause taking place in Qatar and at the same time 50% of the proceeds will be shared with ROTA.

In support of this event, ROTA has taken on the shared responsibility of spreading the word to as many people as possible. The more people that we can get to attend the walk the better. We will try to inform as many schools as possible...

I truly hope that you will join in the walk and help better support children and human beings all over the world that need our help!

Please look at the attachments, one in Arabic and one in English for more information...*
