Welcome to CHW Ottawa
Canadian Hadassah-WIZO (CHW) started in Ottawa by Lillian Freiman (z”l) over 100 years ago and I am truly honoured to be the President of CHW Ottawa Centre. CHW Ottawa Centre has 2 active chapters, Amit and Negev. The Amit Chapter President is Candice Wilder and the Negev Co-presidents are Sharon Michaelson and Sandy Bennett. Our fundraising focus are the same since our founding of Children, Healthcare and Women and we create profound connections to our projects in Israel and Canada. Our members are very active and meet regularly. The meetings often include interesting speakers and activities and over the years the members have created long lasting friendships.
Our chapters fundraising efforts include their annual teas and other events. The Amit chapter has a crafting group within its chapter that makes baby quilts, aprons, shoe and Mahjong bags as well as other holiday items. Each year we hold a week of Annual Campaign Telethons that help us reach out to all our supporters.
