    Soroptimist week - To be decided

    Welcome to the Icelandic Soroptimist Week - Dates to be decided

    It is with great sadness, that we inform you that the committee is forced to postpone the travel week that was to be held in Iceland this summer of 2022. The reason is complications due to the Corona virus, Covid 19 and restrictions and uncertainities on travel.

    Following is a short description of our ideas for the week. We hope to be able to organise it as soon as possible but we want to be on the safe side. 

    Explore Iceland together with your Icelandic sisters in the Club of Hafnarfjordur and Gardabaer. Share the Soroptimist spirit in the wonderful Icelandic nature. Soroptimist sisters are most welcome to bring companions, husbands, children and friends.

    A very important purpose of this week is to welcome foreign Soroptimists in Iceland and share the soroptimist spirit in this fund-raising project of our club. All work contribution during the week is done voluntarily by the Soroptimst sisters in Hafnarfjordur and Gardabaer. The sisters will be cooking your meals and joining you on the trips and other events.

    This is the 15th week that is organised by the Club of Hafnarfjordur and Gardabaer for fund raising purposes. One of our main charity projects is a rehabilitation center in Krýsuvík and a part of the programme is a visit to the center.
