GOVERNOR'S LETTER

Dear District 29 Zontians,

As hours and days pass we realize the dimensions of the catastrophe.
The enormous devastation in South Asia and East Africa is of such epic proportions that it is most difficult to grasp. I ask that you please open your hearts and encourage your members, their families and friends to join with Zonta International and the world community in plea for relief assistance. Unfortunately, Zonta International (International level) does not have the mechanism to establish its own fund to disaster relief.

Zonta International President Mary Ellen Bittner issued a memorandum. I have sent the letter to you on December 30 2004, on the Tsunami Disaster in South Asia and East Africa. Please go to www.zonta.org to read the entire message.

In this emergency situation, of course there are a number of well-qualified charities already making a responsible and immediate impact with donations they receive. Here are just a few.

CARE International www.care.org
Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontières www.msf.org
International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies www.ifrc.org
UNFPA, United Nations Fund for Population Activities www.unfa.org
UNICEF, United Nations Children's Fund www.unicef.org
Local funds

But I like to inform you that the 2004-2006 Governors of Zonta International have been in communication with each other and are anxiously monitoring the resulting events of this catastrophe. We are waiting to hear from the Governors of District 17 (Suphaporn Peters, Bangkok Thailand) and District 25 (Diruba Ahmed, Cittagong, Bangladesh) for their specific requests for assistance. They will, no doubt, have their own service projects and can benefit greatly from our contributions. We are waiting for their proposals.

We expect your evidence of solidarity on the account of Zonta District 29.
Payments can be done:


ABN/AMRO bank Groningen The Netherlands
BIC : ABNANL 2A
IBAN : NL 37 ABNA 056 76 11 981
Bank Account : 56 76 11 981
Name : N. Bijmolen-van der Tuuk
Inzake ZI District 29, notice : "Tsunami - Asia"

We have about 1700 members in our district. My proposal is € 15,00 pro person to start with and I hope we collect more money. May I suggest you to take the opportunity of your next club meeting (January, February of March) to remit your contribution to your club Treasurer. Then, the amount collected in each club will be transfered to Nela Bijmolen District 29 Treasurer.

As soon as I get news from the Governors of District 17 and 25, I shall keep you informed of their needs. In March we shall make a first report of the financial situation.

In June, at our District Conference 17-19 June 2005, we will have a special item as we will know more about the situation in District 17 and 25.

CARE INTERNATIONAL will give a presentation at the District Conference on Sunday morning June 19 2005.

It is important that we establish the means to care for our Zonta sisters and their families.
May I ask your help and support to show our solidarity with all the victims.

On Wednesday January 5 at noon we will commemorate in the European Union the victims of the Tsunami disaster.

I hope translations will follow as soon as possible in French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Russian(?) on the website www.zontadistrict29.org

With love, sincere thanks and warm wishes for a safe, healthy and good New Year,

Regina Smit, Governor
Nicole Herb, LT Governor

Nela Bijmolen, Treasurer
