easons greetings
  Due to the situation with Covid-19, all programs of the UNWG are
cancelled until further notice.
  For limited activities, please Click »here for more information.  

In the months since the COVID-19 pandemic turned the world upside down, we have monitored the situation carefully. Every step of the way, our focus has been on the health and safety of our international community. Our planning has followed the lead of medical experts and public health officials.  We have watched the numbers decline and not surprisingly now a steadily rise again.

After careful consideration we have decided not to hold the Bazaar 2020. It will be impractical and impossible to hold an event like the UNWG Bazaar in its original format.

The year 2020 will not look like any other year. COVID-19 will present a major challenge to nearly every area of life. The UNWG will be no exception, nevertheless, our focus still remains on raising funds for our children’s charities and we will work towards this in accordance with the evolving situation; that commitment will remain paramount.

We are reminded of the tenacious, resilient spirit of our UNWG community as we strive to attain our goal of improving the quality of life for vulnerable women and children around the world. Despite the pandemic, members of the Charity Committee deligently reviewed the charity propoals submited for funding in 2020. Working mostly on-line with occassional in-person meetings, CRC completed the review with obtained General member approval. The disbursement of funds for 2020 is almost complete.

In the meantime, please be careful and stay safe. We would love to hear from you. Our email is:
