International Women's Contact The Hague

Our History


In October 1978,  Hanneke van Eekelen, the late Saramata Voorhoeve and the late Henriette de Lange came together with their experiences in an international environment and formed a committee of women of all ages to meet and welcome newcomers to The Hague.

IWC The Hague has been, from its birth to the present day, a very lively and harmonious Club, with various activities and interesting Monthly Meetings.

IWC honors the countless members who have dedicated so much of their time serving with energy, dedication and enthusiasm on Executive Boards, the many Committees organizing bazaars, food fairs, charity events and memorable jubilee celebrations. Truly a wonderful legacy for all the IWC members.
