(kus) Already for the 17th time the International Women’s Club Frankfurt organized its traditional “Christmas Tea“ at the Römer in Frankfurt.
The IWC, which was founded in 1946 by the Frankfurt teacher Elisabeth Norgall, is a non-profit, politically and religiously independent association of women, which has set itself the goal of overcoming divisions between nations and cultures through contacts and mutual acquaintance, developing understanding for one another and thus contributing to peace and friendship in the world. Shortly after it was founded in 1946, the IWC was committed to helping the unemployed for whom jobs were sought and to supporting those in need. Today the manifold social activities of the IWC have grown beyond the borders of Frankfurt and over the years have been able to alleviate the small and big needs of needy people at home and abroad.
„In order to realize this work we need the financial support of the guests, through the annual collection of donations for Christmas tea“, says the president of the IWC Susanne Held. The donations from the Christmas Tea go to the working groups for the senior pencils Kronthal and Hohenwald and the Mosaic School.
Lord Mayor Peter Feldmann praised the ladies for their social commitment in his welcoming speech. „The members of the International Women's Club Frankfurt stand for the cohesion of this city. Being there for others creates fellowship. People from 175 countries live together peacefully in Frankfurt. Integration is certainly easier here.“
