Busan International Women's Association

What's up in BIWA?

NEW BIWA PRESIDENT

 

 

I am excited to introduce myself as the new President of the Busan International Women Association (BIWA). I have been a member of our association since shortly after I arrived in Busan in the beginning of 2011. I can say with 100% confidence that BIWA has helped to make my adaptation to Korea a very smooth one. I am in Busan with my husband David. We have two daughters who live in the USA. By the way, they loved Busan when they visited us. What is not to love here?

 

 

Socially, BIWA has awarded me with wonderful friends and provides me with an opportunity to try a great variety of cultural activities from many different countries. Nonetheless, it is the welfare work that attracts me the most to BIWA. My background is in Social Sciences (BA in Sociology and Master’s in Human Services/Welfare). I have spent most of my adult life doing welfare work as a volunteer. In Florida I advocated for abused and neglected children within the Brevard County Court System. That was the most rewarding job I ever had!

 

 

 The BIWA was founded in 1965 and since then has been providing support to many orphanages, study rooms, soup kitchens, disabled individuals, elderly in need as well as scholarships to young Koreans. BIWA’s members are dynamic ladies, from all different kinds of backgrounds and cultures. At BIWA we join hands and do our best to bring smiles and provide comfort to people in need in Busan and the Kyungsand Nando area. Please contact me at cariocam@bellsouth.net if you are interested in joining our association or if you just want to find out more about it.

 

 

My Best,

Marilza Novaes-Card
