CHARITY PROJECTS 2019
We are excited to announce that we will be supporting Güzelbahçe Kent Konseyi Engelli Meclisi as our 2019 Charity of the Year!
Engelli Meclisi not only helps and supports people with a physical disability, they also support people with various types of mental disabilities, including children. These children may have been diagonised with something like autism or they may suffer from a physical disability. The organisation is a support group managed by Güzelbahçe Belediyesi.
Engelli Meclisi focus on providing an accessable physical environment with associated equipment for people of all ages with any sort of disability. They aim to provide specialised classrooms for disabled children and equipment such as wheelchairs and electric beds for the elderly.
We have been supplied with a list of equipment that would assist Engelli Meclisi help their clients. We plan to visit them and ask them to prioritise their equipment needs.
Our minor Charity will be Sait Güzelcan Ortaokulu in Bornova who have requested we purchase an airconditioner for them.
So far this year we have already organised several successful fund raising activities. There was a popular potluck charity lunch, a charity collection at the International Women's Day lunch, fundraising from the dinner at Le Cigale restaurant as well as a calligraphy class.
Our May fundraising event will be a cooking class at Mutfak Konak Atelier on 23 May. We would like 20 people to attend this Charity event to contribute to IWAI's important goal of fund raising.
Our final Charity event before summer will be a potluck lunch and charity sale. It will be held on 14 June at St John the Evangelist Church in Alsancak.
The Board hopes lots of our members can attend these events to share positive times together in our fund raising endeavours. Please feel free to invite your friends to support IWAI's Charity events.
We will post further details about all coming events in the near future and how your attendance will boost IWAI's 2019 Charity fund raising.
