Wings 10th Anniversary Launch Party
‘It All Begins With Family Planning…’
Join WINGS in celebrating a decade of impressive achievements in the field of reproductive health and a continued commitment to improving the lives of Guatemalan families on Thursday, March 17, from 5:30-8:00 p.m. at Mesón Panza Verde in La Antigua.
Founded a decade ago by retired U.S. Foreign Service Officer Sue Patterson, WINGS has gone from an initial operating budget of $4,000 to over $1 million in 2011 and now serves over 30,000 people annually in 7 departments throughout Guatemala.
The organization provides reproductive health education for women, men and adolescents; subsidies for short- and long-term family planning methods; cervical cancer screening and treatment; advocacy training for better public health service provision; and capacity-building for other organizations.
With the theme “It All Begins With Family Planning…,” the 10th anniversary kickoff event will feature a special screening at 6:45 p.m. of WINGS’ new short film about family planning. Photos showcasing scenes from WINGS’ work in Guatemala will also be for sale. Ms. Patterson, a resident of La Antigua whose diplomatic career spanned the globe, will be in attendance.
Admission of Q50 includes a complimentary drink and hors d’oeuvres, with all proceeds benefiting WINGS. The event is being generously hosted by Mesón Panza Verde, 5a av. sur #19, La Antigua.
