I'm in the process of researching the activities and background of a French NGO called AIDAFRIQUE. This NGO has provided humanitarian assistance in various African countries and Vietnam through a subsidiary NGO called AIDAFRIQUE AU VIET NAM. AIDAFRIQUE has previously assisted and been assisted by UNHCR, but is not a UNHCR Partner.
I would appreciate it if anyone with "any knowledge" of this NGO would provide such to me. I am particularly interested in knowing whether it is an approved NGO Partner of any UN department.
if it is still a current charity, and OMG offers something other than tracts to the hungry, i'd like to know more about it.
if it is still a current charity and is a current NGO then the watchtower still has current ties with the United nations. I'd like to know more about it.
i tried bumping up the old thread but got no interest. i'm hoping this thread gets some. and hopefully someone has some more up to date info on this charity.
