In-Country President Perparim Demcellari retires after 20 years
He has been on our staff since 1999 and has served as President of the Foundation in Albania these years.
As such, Perparim has been an awesome leader for our staff, and the voice to the government for HFTW.
He has kept us with a pristine reputation in the country among all of the many state departments we have to deal with concerning the orphans.
Under his leadership, HFTW has been named as the Number 1 NGO (non-governmental organizations); we have been recognized by our US President’s First Lady, Laura Bush with a visit especially to our Hope Center teens, We have received the highest award attainable by any organization in Albania, “The Mother Theresa Medalion” which was presented by the President of Albania.
We have seen thousands of orphan children’s lives changed through the ministry of HFTW under Perparim’s leadership.
Perparim is retiring the end of this year, at age 70. He will, however, be a very important and active member of our foundation’s board in Albania and at our “beck and call” as we need him, he has promised us.
We love this Godly man. He will continue his role in our church as well. We dedicate this page to him and his precious wife, Aferdita.
They are truly like our own brother and sister. Separated only by the water. God bless you Perparim. We love you and THANK YOU from our hearts for your wonderful service for 20 years.
Along with caring for the needy in Albania for over 25 years, Roger and Cherie have spent a lifetime in Evangelism, Gospel music and soul-winning services for Christ Jesus.
