"Chisinau was my last overseas posting before retirement. I knew I wanted to meet expat and local women and IWCM gave me the perfect opportunity.
Very soon I was involved in charity projects and enjoyed the company of a great set of young and older ladies both from Moldova and abroad.
I was privileged to meet a number of local people through ICWMs activities and get a glimpse of the real Moldova outside of the cushy Chisinau expat life."
"IWCM is a huge part of my life, more than 10 years of volunteering for good causes, new friendships, new beginnings, new dreams, wider horizons and lovely memories!...
...One day, a good friend of mine invited me to be part of this Club. It was a wonderful opportunity for an active woman, young mother, craving for socialising and activities outside of motherhood. It was my fresh air, it was so new and uncommon. I had the opportunity to make new friends, to meet and embrace new cultures, also to be part of wonderful events and to dream that one day I can be one of those travelling around the world.
I really miss those social small craft groups before the Winter Bazaars, sharing different stories, Christmas traditions from all over the world and creating beautiful crafts for our fundraising. As well, missing our potlucks for different occasions, sharing our best recipes.
One of my favorite projects in IWCM was the Angel tree. The feeling of being a Santa for an angel is worth anything in this world!
Now my dream has come true. I am sharing my experience on the opposite side of this Planet, on Fiji islands, making new friends and sharing with others the word about my beautiful Moldova."
