The year 2017 marked its 20 years that Indonesian Welfare Association (IWA) has served the Indonesian community in Sydney.

We commemorated our 20th anniversary achievements by holding a number of educational and fundraising events within the community.  One of the aims was to enhance the community members’ sense of well-being, togetherness and reducing social isolation. 

Over the last 20 years, IWA has grown and now have 5 established groups in 5 different locations.

We have organised several group celebrations throughout 2017: 

  • Happy Seniors Cruise – 5 April 2017
  • Kartini Picnic Day – 21 April 2017
  • IWA Liwetan Dinner Celebration – 6 May 2017
  • Active & Healthy Group Celebration – 23 May & 12 July 2017
  • Oldies But Goodies – 2 June 2017
  • Queens at Heart Fundraising – 12 June 2017
  • IWA Liwetan Lunch – 18 August 2017
  • IWA Seniors Fun Day – 6 December 2017

All of those activities were intended to highlight our past & present accomplishments, as well as to draw new interest and excitement for our future initiatives. 

We organised our special event, the 20th Anniversary Celebration, on 26th August 2017 at Ashfield Civic Centre, Ashfield, with more than 250 people attended, including some dignitaries.

It is IWA’s aim to expand its services and reach more members of the community.

Additionally, it is IWA’s dream to have its own community hub, a meeting place and facilities that could offer a variety of educational, social and recreational activities, tailored to the members’ interest.

We would like to express our greatest appreciation to so many people who has contributed and dedicated their efforts and involvement in IWA’s development and success.

Furthermore, thanks a million to our Volunteers for their vital role, who has given up their time on a weekly or monthly basis, and without them we would never accomplish what we have today. 

Our wonderful and tireless Volunteers are the reasons behind all our success!

THANK YOU to each of our volunteers for your dedication and passion, your time and hard work.
