Celebrating the Golden Jubilee of the Inner Wheel Clubs in District 95 (Egypt and Jordan).

On Sunday, 5 December 2021, at 1:00 pm at the Semiramis Intercontinental Hotel, the Inner Wheel Clubs in District 95, Egypt (28 clubs) and Jordan (3 clubs) celebrated the Golden Jubilee of its formation.

District 95 started as five clubs on this day in 1971. Now, there are thirty-one Clubs and a thousand Inner Wheel members serving, helping and caring in all areas of health, education and guidance for women and children.

The ceremony began with the District Chairman Mrs Hala Hagrass, welcoming the Executive Committee and distinguished guests from the Inner Wheel Clubs in Jordan. She also welcomed Ms. Laila Al-Aswad, a member of the International Inner Wheel Board of Directors, presidents and members from Inner Wheel Clubs in Egypt.

She praised the work, effort and contributions in multiple projects in all fields that serve women and children during the past fifty years.

National Representative Mrs Iman El-Bashary, welcomed the distinguished guests and commended the founders of the first five IW Clubs in 1971, namely Cairo, Amman, Alexandria, Mansoura and Heliopolis. She thanked all the members for their dedication over fifty years in serving the communities in Egypt and Jordan.

Mrs El Bashary read a message sent by IIW President Ebe Panitteri Martines congratulating our members:

“Club Members, women of talent, ability and compassion united in service and friendship. Today’s special milestone gives you the opportunity to reflect about your history, achievements and dedication to serving your community and be proud to belong to one of the most important women’s volunteering organisations in the world. I thank you for the important work you have done and continue to do. Enjoy this special celebration honouring 50 years of outstanding service and accept my best wishes for continued success in the years to come, keeping your District Clubs effective and relevant to the future needs of your community and not only. Happy Golden Jubilee.”

NR Iman El-Bashary and DC Hala Hagrass dedicated a greeting card to each IW member, "We would like to thank you so much for all your voluntary hard work and help since the establishment of Inner Wheel Clubs in 1971. You are always there, united in serving the communities and the ray of hope in many people’s lives in our District 95 of Egypt and Jordan. Please continue to give, support and help as we are women in action, working together to make a difference and improve lives."
