WIZO Finland was established already 1924 in Viborg (which after the war became part of Russia), 1926 in Helsinki and 1946 in Turku. The federations in Helsinki and Turku are still active. Wizo Finland is probably the only federation in Europe that was active without interruption throughout the WWII.
