Dear Members,

I hope you are all well.  The year so far seems to be passing quickly and yet also seems to be crawling slowly.

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.

I am 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.

In the meantime, please be careful and stay safe. We would love to hear from you. My email is: unwgviennapresident@gmail.com

Dear UNWG Members,

The Charity Review Committee CRC completed our work of research and review of project application and our members approved the list of proposal that were submitted.  The Treasurer initiated transfer of funds to the approved organizations.  But the pandemic strike in March and we must adjust our work accordingly.  For one thing, we may not be able to celebrate the award of grants in 2021 and the annual Bazaar must be cancelled.  Additional, three approved projects informed us that they could not implement the projects due to disruption of the Covid-19. The current count of the 2020 charity grant total is €101,808.75.  The Board decided that the un-used money would be forwarded to 2021.  For details of the projects, please visit the Charity page. The application forms for 2021 in seven languages are also available on the Charity age. Application for 2021 are open from 1 September to 1 December 2020.

 If anyone is interested in being a member of the CRC  team next year they are encouraged to drop a message to Cathy Kieffer at unwgvienna2ndvicepresident@gmail.com.  A short description as to why you want to be on the committee and background would be helpful. Any member of the guild can join the committee. We will be looking for a cross section of people from all 7 regions.  The selection of the new team will take place after the November election. The work for the committee is usually January to April and then helping with the ceremony later in the year.

  Bazaar 2020 - Saturday 28 November Cancelled for 2020!!  
  With great enthusiasm, we have started to work on the organization of the next UNWG Bazaar 2020. As you well know, the Bazaar is the most important charity event for the UNWG. For those that have never participated, this is an amazing festival, to share cultures in the form of a market place where everyone can experience the sensation to help the children of entire the world. We invite you, your families and friends to join us in this wonderful event on Saturday, 28 November to be held in the Austria Centre Vienna. For the general bazaar improvements, we need volunteers to coordinate different programs with new and bright ideas on marketing, publicity and shows to be organized. Volunteers are also needed to obtain (asking companies, businesspersons and establishments) donations as tombola prizes or cash donations and help organize a Restaurant Stall or National Goods Stall. We look forward to joining hands with you and working shoulder to shoulder, for children in need of help everywhere. A successful Bazaar will contribute to obtain more resources to help all children in the world for a happier childhood, helping their needs and a better quality of life. Alone we do so little, all together we can do so much!
