AWC Spring Fling (mini-Bazaar)

Planned for Saturday, 14 April at Sankt Andreas Kirke:
Can you help?

AWC is joining forces with ICC (the International Church of Copenhagen) to hold the Spring Fling, to have fun and raise money for our charitable projects. It will be held in the fellowship hall of Sankt Andreas Kirke, Gothersgade 148, 1123 København K – close to Nørreport Station and a flock of bus stops and right across from the Botanical Garden. Enter through side door on Gothersgade and climb the stairs.

AWC will sell books, music and DVDs; jewelry and accessories such as handbags, ICC will run the café and Democrats Abroad will be present to register voters for the 2018 US elections. Can you help us make the event a success, by: 

- Donating articles to sell?
- Attending and buying articles for sale?
- Volunteering to help set up/clean up, sell on the day, or
- Publicizing the event to everyone you know?

We will also have space for a few vendors to sell their own products: the cost of a table is 10% of your takings on the day.

To volunteer, reserve a table as a vendor or get further information contact Mary Stewart Burgher ( See you at the Spring Fling!


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 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

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!
