Thinking of you

Dear Zonta members,

Who would have foreseen that, within only a few days, lives for almost of all us have changed dramatically in order to slow down the spreading of COVID-19? Many of you are experiencing not only shelter-in-place mandates, with all the difficulties and sad consequences that come with them, but also much more forceful impacts on your own health and that of your loved ones, on your businesses and on your jobs.

    “I joined Zonta not only due to my willingness to contributing to improve women’s well-being on this globe, but also because of meeting and collaborating with Zontians—a variety of smart and energetic women with different backgrounds, knowledge and experience. If not for Zonta, most likely I would never have met them.”
