WLCU Sydney raised and allocated over $120,000 in its first financial year. This was made possible by the generosity of members, friends and sponsors. This article provides an update on where funds have gone as well as an update on WLCU Sydney achieving charitable status. Our next step is registering for DGR status, which will allow donors to receive a tax deduction for donations.

WLCU World President letter to UNSCOL 

During late July 2021 our World President WLCU, Mr Stephen Stanton, presented to the United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon (UNSCOL), Ms Joanna Wronecka. World President Stanton affirmed the WLCU’s commitment and responsibility to co-ordinate and co-operate with the United Nations (UN) and the UNSCOL, and the need for the UN to undertake determinative diplomacy.

Hi! Keefna? Ça Va? 2021

On the balmy Thursday evening of 16 June, the WLCU hosted its first-ever expatriate event. Hi! Keefna? Ça Va? The name of the soiree is the traditional Lebanese greeting, that we as part of the Lebanese diaspora are tickled with whenever we visit the golden shores of the motherland.

HSC Distinguished Achievers Awards Night – Class of 2020

The 2020 graduating class were celebrated with an exceptional first HSC Distinguished Achievers Awards event. Each of the recipients should feel enormously proud and be hopefully driven to continue this excellence in coming years, their careers and in life. We look forward to continuing this annual recognition of the great accomplishments of the young Lebanese Australians for many years to come.
