Dynamic businesswoman and now based in Manila, Zamboangueña Cory Navarro, spearheaded a successful Christmas Dental Mission and Gift Giving for Aetas at Subic, Clark last December 20. Cory, who was elected as the president of the Inner Wheel Club of the Philippines Inc. (IWCP) of Pasay Edsa under District 381 this year, has been leading the club to its cause.

The humanitarian Inner Wheel project was coordinated with the ICWP Charter Club Metro Manila headed by Camille Navarro, the Zonta Club of Parañaque with president Dr. Marilou Maligaya, the Rotary Club of Makati Edsa led by Emily Alvarez, and the Foundation of Atty. Rene Punzalan.

IWCP is an international organization of committed women bound by friendship and dedicated to selfless service to humanity. What started as a club of wives of Rotary International in 1928, it is now the second largest women organization in the world with over 103,700 members composing of wives, widows, and members of a Rotarian’s household in 84 countries. Cory is an active officer, Vice-President of Rotary Club of Makati Edsa.

Like a Rotary Club, the Inner Wheel is divided into local clubs and Districts uniting all Ladies Rotarian groups under the Inner Wheel umbrella. The importance of Inner Wheel can be seen from its consultancy status it has with the United Nations (NGO).  The club conducts projects, emergency aid and domestic charity programs combined with friendship often found in assisting Rotary projects and other organizations.

Colossians 3:12-14 “Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.”
