who are we? IWOG is a secular, non-profit, non-political, organisation, first established in 1948 to offer philanthropic assistance to the Greek people torn by civil war. IWOG is for all women residing in Northern Greece, temporarily or permanently, with the English language as their common bond. Our membership ranges in age from 18 years and upwards.

Our members receive a monthly newsletter and an annual Membership Directory with the names and contact information of all members, plus a section of paid advertising for members’ and non-members’ local businesses.

Each year we organise fundraising events, such as our famous IWOG Fiesta every other Autumn, as well as our much-loved Christmas Bazaar. 

how can I get involved? If you would like to apply for membership, please come along to our next coffee meeting and ask Eleni Mylona at the door, our Membership chairlady, to give you a form. We also encourage all members to get involved with our activities, by joining one of our clubs.
