New Year Message from Unanima
AT THE END OF THE YEAR
As this year draws to its end,
We give thanks for the gifts it brought
And how they became inlaid within
Where neither time nor tide can touch them.
Days when beloved faces shone brighter
With light from beyond themselves;
And from the granite of some secret sorrow
A stream of buried tears loosened.
We bless this year for all we learned,
For all we loved and lost
And for the quiet way it brought us
Nearer to our invisible destination.
With love and blessings for 2019

At UNANIMA International we are proud to be part of numerous NGO groups, especially the NGO Working Group to End Homelessness.
Today, to celebrate urban October we attended this working group’s fabulous event “Ending Homelessness: Floors and Roofs for All in the Sustainable Cities of the Future”. To see a working group have such positive outcomes in its first year is truely encouraging! We can’t wait to see how much more we, together, can achieve in the future!
