Report: Many thanks to our host for arranging the IWA Soup Lunch and making us so welcome, it was a lovely friendly and warm event and a welcome haven from the intermittent sleet outside.

We had a choice of four delicious soups and some all too wonderful freshly made scones with jam and cream.

Our host had made 3 soups and a 4th, a Dutch potato soup, was provided by our newest member.

It was also great to some non IWA members.

We have not yet totted up the sum which will be given to the charity Mary’s Meals as we anticipate some late donations.

The Louth branch of the IWA held a soup lunch on Saturday 11th May in aid of Ethiopiaid and, in particular, women who suffer from an obstetric fistula. This is a problem that can affect women after a long and difficult labour, and is described by the WHO as the ‘single most dramatic aftermath of neglected childbirth.’  If the tissues of the vagina or bladder are damaged, urine and/or faeces pass uncontrollably. Should this happen to a women in the developed world, they are treated immediately. However women in the developing world are not, and can be rejected by their husbands and communities and live a smelly, unhealthy and isolated existence.  They can suffer extreme psychological trauma and, if they spend long periods of time inactive, they may even end up unable to walk.  The Addis Ababa Fistula hospital, run by Dr Catherine Hamlin, not only cures these women, but also teaches them a craft and gives them a new clean dress so they can return home health and confident, with skills that will enable them to earn a living back in their communities.

A cheque for £130 was sent as a result of the soup lunch, raffle and book sale.
Anyone interested in this worthy cause can find information on line.  Anyone interested in joining the IWA can ring Pat Mowbray on 01507 490361 on contact us on line at  Our next meeting will be on 7th June and will be a talk intriguingly entitled ‘Tax, Care and Toy boys’ delivered by Collective Legal solutions.
