Dear Wikimedia Ghana User Group,
I hope this email finds you well and you are staying safe amidst the
ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that has brought so many unexpected changes to
our working lives.
Deborah Jacobs, our communities liaison coordinator earlier sent you an
invitation to participate in the #WPWPCampaign 2021 edition
We'd like to follow-up with you on this.
In case you missed her previous email, here is a link
add your community to the participating communities list. We'd provide
additional information afterwards.
Please let us know if you require further information.
With best regards,
Project Manager and Coordinator
On behalf of the #WPWPCampaign International Organizing Team
