Warmth and Chills at Soup and Bread Night:

International Women’s Day Celebration

For the past decade, Soup and Bread events have been held in major US cities. AWC proudly introduces this fundraising style to Copenhagen to celebrate International Women’s Day 2018. Women and men are invited to this event to partake of some warm delicious soups and homemade breads.  Some of the highlights of the evening will be: a raffle with some great prizes, a popular guest speaker and a fun quiz testing your knowledge about women’s issues.

This event takes place in March. See all the details in the "Activities" section.

Profits will benefit our two Kenyan orphans whose education and medical care AWC is sponsoring through Vision Peoples in Mission, in Nairobi, Kenya.

If you would like to volunteer to help for this fundraising event, your help in setting up, serving, cleaning up, providing prizes for the raffle, or food/beverages donations will gladly be accepted. Contact us at awcbazaar@gmail.com.

AWC Denmark sponsors two orphans in Kenya

Vision Peoples Mission, Kenya – Report from “our orphans”

Xmas greetings from Vision Peoples Mission, Kenya, situated in the Nairobi slums, which run a program that provides orphans with education and medical care. AWC has been supporting two orphans, who live with foster families. I recently received their school grades and both of them are above average in their classes. Parvaneh, an AWC member, has written several encouraging letters to our "children".  

We invite all our members and their families to write and send words of encouragement (and small gifts, if you desire). For children, growing up without parents, these letters validate their existence and give them courage to persevere. Write to awcbazaar@gmail.com for their address. 
Below is an email from the matron in charge of the orphans.


Dear AWC,

We thank you for your Christmas card that you sent to Karen and Erickson.

The card was lovely and both Karen and Erickson were very excited to receive such a beautiful gift from you this Christmas. Thank you for your prayers and support to these destitute children.

May your New Year be peaceful, joyful and blessed. Pass our sincere gratitude to Parvaneh and members of AWC. 

Yours grateful
Mrs Dorine Ngesa
MATRON

Jewelry Donations

Cyntheia Singleton, our dedicated jewelry saleswoman would like to remind all our members once again to go through their jewelry to see if you have anything that is not being worn any longer and which you would like to donate to our fundraising efforts. Cyntheia’s constant efforts with the sale of jewelry at our meetings and other events provide the club with a steady trickle of funds that we can pass on to our chosen charities.

So take a look through your drawers, treasure chests and cubby holes to see if something you’ve tired of needs a new enthusiastic owner!
