April 2021  
  Dear Members,
It is finally April, after a long hard winter with the Covid-19 pandemic. There is something refreshing and hopeful about seeing the usual signs of spring and the world awakening. This also gives us hope to one-day get back to normal. There is a basic human need to connect with other people. This Covid-19 pandemic has caused a lot of people to become isolated and withdrawn. If you do go out, you must wear a mask. This puts a physical and emotional barrier between others and us. It is a communication barrier because you cannot see a smile. We are exploring more activities to our members to provide a connection even though we cannot meet in person. Of course, we are
 
  limited, but in some ways, zoom allows many more people to participate because we can “meet” even as we are in different countries. At least we can see each other’s faces and smile. Click your Friday email for more information about our current activities.Meanwhile, the Charity Review Committee has formed for 2021 and we’ll be looking at proposals that will be considered for our diminished funds this year.In the meantime, please be careful and stay safe. We would love to hear from you. Our email is: unwgviennapresident@gmail.com

  Dear Members,

The Charity Review office invites you to join the Charity Review Committee (CRC) 2021. Despite the fact that we have limited funds to be awarded to global projects within our mandate, we continue to work and persist despite the pandemic, we are here joining hands to help children as much as we can! Joined hands, great effort and much success. We are calling out to ladies who want to join the team, for those who are new, worry not, there will be training to bring you up to speed and empower you to evaluate the incoming projects. Take this chance to add or sharpen your many skills. For those interested please send an email to: unwgcharityvienna@gmail.com and we will definitely come back to you with more details. We look forward to hearing from you!
 
 
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 seven regions.  The selection of the new team will take place in February. The work for the committee is usually January to April and then helping with the ceremony later in the year.
