International Women's Contact The Hague

Charity

Compassion and sharing with others in need, is one of the goals of IWC The Hague. Over the years our club has raised money to support many charity projects, both in the Netherlands and abroad.

The Club raises money through raffles, proceeds from art tours/lectures and excursions, as well as proceeds from events organized by various interest groups, such as the Patchwork & Quilting group, Bridge group, Spanish conversation, etc.
This year IWC The Hague is supporting a charity project in the Netherlands called “Stichting Vlinderkind” (Butterfly Child Foundation). Founded in 2008, this charity aims to assist children suffering from Epidermolysis Bullosa, a genetic skin disease.

  1. Dutch foundation “Blijf vrouw”
  2. Sunflower Saigon
  3. Keihan, medical help in Afghanistan
  4. Maya Gotami Foundation in Thailand
  5. President’s Fund for Medical Treatment in Sri Lanka
