Season’s Greetings! I wish you and your families a happy, healthy and peaceful New Year. Let us hope that sense and justice prevails in those parts of the world where there is conflict and disturbances.
I am delighted to be elected as the Interim President of FIWAL and thank you for placing your confidence in me. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed. I have been part of FIWAL Executive for the past seven years and I look forward to continuing with the social, cultural and friendly aims of FIWAL.
It has always impressed me to notice the way our Member clubs work so that they could touch the lives of those who are less fortunate than us. Most of the clubs, irrespective of their charity status, are helping to educate girls. Every girl who is educated does not just change her own life or the life of her family but contributes hugely to the life of her community. In many parts of the world the women’s situation is unbelievably awful and anything that helps to change their lives for the better has to be applauded and supported.
One of the pleasures of the festive season is the opportunity to extend cordial greetings to all of you whose devotion we value so highly at FIWAL. Thanks to you we will be going into the New Year with the understanding, support and strength to build on our accomplishments.
With the passing of time however, one has to make changes and we at FIWAL are well aware of it. We strongly encourage your suggestions and very valuable input. It is most fortunate that we can learn from each other’s expertise.
As always, it is my pleasure to assist you in any way that I can. Please do not hesitate to contact me, I am always happy to help.
I look forward to our working together and thanks again.
Interim President, FIWAL
