IWC status update:

Due to received enquires we wish to inform all our supporters that the governing bodies and current IWC members regret witnessing the continued multiple attempts by former members that have been expelled from the IWC, due to their sabotage activities during the last IWC Bazaar of 2019, to further harm the image and long standing history of the club. 

Led by personal ambitions, the said women have during the past year succeeded to halt the normal activities of the IWC club despite multiple pleas and attempts to amicably resolve the personal conflict initiated by them.

The above personal attempts have led to multiple checks by various Bulgarian authorities for alleged miscarrying of IWC activities, which appeared ungrounded and damaged the excellent reputation of the clubin recent years.

The above mentioned attempts have also been unilaterally presented to some media representative with doubtful reputation to further harm the club’s image.

The IWC express regret of the said events and hope to find a resolution enabling its work for noble charitable causes to continue once the ongoing court proceedings are concluded.

From the IWC Management


2019 will remain in the history of the IWC with its 30th Anniversary celebrations and it’s most remarkable achievements. In my report last year I predicted that our organisation has the potential to become the best in Bulgaria….
