WFWPU 25th Anniversary Celebration
Mrs. Tina Coombes was our MC for the day and she did a splendid job. We first watched the WFWPI introductory video, then Mrs Mitty Tohma, WFWP President in UK read Prof Yeon Ah Nim's Address which she gave at the One UN Building in March during the CSW. She shared some of the following important message:
Our local Birmingham WFWP Women's Peace Group has entered into a genuine partnership with the city's Iranian Club, supporting each others' events, to our mutual benefit. I was invited to have a stall at this year's Cultural Fair, to teach craft-making skills to Iranian women, young and old. They were amazingly creative, as you can see from the photos, making beautiful cards of all descriptions.
