On Wednesday June 2nd, the International Women’s Club of Belgrade (IWC) held its June Coffee Morning event at the residence of the American ambassador.
The event was highlighted by a visit from guest of honor, Madame Vučić. Newly-elected IWC president Sonia Shehryar, wife of the Pakistani ambassador, spoke to a crowd of nearly 100 IWC members, guests, and other spouses of ambassadors. She presented gifts to Madame Vučić and to Anne Godfrey, wife of the American ambassador.
The event was also a craft fair that featured Etno Mreža, a group that represents 22 communities of crafters from throughout Serbia who are keeping alive the traditional Serbian motifs, patterns, and weaving styles that represent an important part of Serbian culture and heritage.
The IWC was also selling its popular book, Belgrade Through the Eyes of Foreigners, which is its latest fundraising effort. Proceeds from the sale of the book go to support Covid-19 relief projects throughout Serbia.
