Greetings from London! As the newly installed President of CHW London Centre, I am honoured to join the impressive group of women who help to lead this amazing organization. CHW’s focus on women, children, and healthcare is truly worthy of our support. The many daycares, schools, womens’ shelters, healthcare, and research programs in Israel, which are supported by our fundraising efforts, provide fundamental value to those in need and ultimately benefit everyone.
London has a long history of participation in CHW dating back many decades. Although we have seen changes over the years, thanks to our dedicated members and volunteers we have always continued in our strong support and fundraising efforts both old and new. This fall we will again hold our annual Hadassah Bazaar, which will make it 53 consecutive years and counting! Several years ago we successfully launched our “Grand Theatre Project” fundraiser, which has become a major annual event, raising thousands of dollars each year for our projects in Israel. Our chapters hold monthly meetings where we are educated, entertained, and inspired, and we welcome new members with open arms! I am proud to be a part of this community and the larger organization and look forward to a productive and successful term as President.
