I believe that despite the socioeconomic difficulties experienced in Argentina, the objectives are to give greater presence to WIZO to be able to increase the number of donors, members and friends. This presence is our passport for interaction with other institutions in the community, developing convening activities to bring together young people and thus ensure the continuity of our projects in Israel. All this bearing in mind the local solidarity activities, through which we reach those who need it most, even in the interior of the country, thanks to the regional branches in some provinces.
