Zonta Club of Basel donates gifts to women’s shelter during holiday season

The Zonta Club of Basel, Switzerland, donated gifts for women and children to a women's shelter during the holiday season.

Following a talk with the leadership team of the local women's shelter earlier in 2020, the members of the Zonta Club of Basel dedicated their annual Christmas donation to this organization. The shelter had expressed the need due to the increased number of clients during the COVID-19 pandemic and their lack of time and room.

About 200 nicely wrapped gifts (labeled with the contents) and a cash donation for special education needs for children during critical phases were provided in mid-December.

The director of the shelter was very appreciative and reported back that the women were touched and happy and for the team, it was a relief that they could generously present the gifts.
