From member Sue Pope:
It was with great regret that we announce the death of Dorothea Allinson.
Dorothea arrived in Munich in November 1997. Having already lived in Brussels and The Hague, she knew what she was looking for, and soon became a member of the Club. Dorothea came across as a quiet woman – but in fact she had a brilliant sense of humour, and was interested in many things. She was a member of the Needlers group and the Book club, although as a dyslexic, she much preferred shorter books. With her husband’s retirement looming, in May 2011, she started her move back to England. She regretted leaving Munich, but was very happy to be nearer her growing family. While in Munich she started having heart problems. In September 2014, Dorothea had an operation on her heart, from which she didn’t fully recover, and on 26th January, Dorothea passed away, with her family at her bedside. Dorothea was a great friend, and will be missed by all who knew her.
New to Munich with time on your hands? Interested in giving back to your community? Looking to meet new people? Dozens of organizations presented information on volunteer opportunities at a volunteer fair at the Gasteig recently. Some organizations can use non-German speaking volunteers and many, many more would like you to have a good command of the German language. If you are interested in volunteering on either an occasional basis or a regular basis, you may indeed find an organization here that matches your interests. Continue reading

MIWC members have supported the Frauenhaus in numerous ways over the years. We invite you to continue to make donations of gently used, seasonally appropriate clothing. The Frauenhaus has no storage space, so items must be appropriate for the season in which you donate them. Items can be brought to the monthly meeting and place on the right side of the hallway near the front door. We have a team of drivers who then deliver the goods to Frauenhaus.
Please keep in mind that the clothes should be in good condition. If you would not share an item with a friend, it shouldn’t be donated to Frauenhaus. Also, the Frauenhaus does not need bric-a-brac or small decorative items. Below, please find a list of the current needs.

Dear Members of the Munich International Women’s Club,
We would like to graciously thank you for the generous donation to Dental Hygienists for India.
We recently returned from a very successful trip to the tribal regions of Kalayan, north of Mumbai. There we implemented oral hygiene brushing programs and Oral Health Awareness courses for the NGO staff members, tribal Women’s Self Help groups and Children’s Parliament groups. We also screened, cleaned and educated over 1000 children and their parents in various poor rural villages.
You charitable donation has purchased over 4000 toothbrushes for these children. We also provided oral education and brushing instructions for the parents, teachers and village leaders. Most of these people have never seen a toothbrush, let alone know what to do with one. They also did not see the importance of keeping children’s teeth clean and healthy. Now they have learned to train others in the area and pass this information forward.
Your donation has significantly supported us to create a greater awareness about the importance of oral health.
With the rest of the donation, we were also able to purchase 1 Ultrasonic unit, which is necessary to clean the children’s teeth directly in the villages.
These units are vital for our work and since we are solely a volunteer-based charity organization supported though donations you have helped us purchase one of these much-needed pieces of equipment.
I have included some pictures of where your donation has helped us and I thank you once again for supporting our mission of “helping them to help themselves”.
