President Message

A very happy New Year to my favorite ladies,

May this New Year of 2023 bring light and joy, a sense of compassion and serenity. These days are fraught with so much news of war, hunger, difficulties, that the only way to overcome all of this is with just one true act of kindness.

And that is what we at IWOG are known for. This year we will be helping the community center of IRIDA, the unaccompanied minors and refugees who are being housed in Ano Poli, the sisters of Charity, who run a home for battered women, the Breath Of Hope, and many others in need. I am deeply grateful to all of our members who through your contributions and generosity of spirit have made this possible.
