Honouring Marianne

Marianne Van Der Poorten was a devoted WIZO woman. Supporting WIZO's vital welfare work in Israel was her life-long passion. Everyone who knew Marianne would remember her personal motto of 'live today'.

And that's why this year the Sponsor a Child in Israel campaign is in her honour. We want to help children in need 'live today', with all their basic needs provided for.
