Zonta Says No campaign
We support the health and wellbeing of women as called for in the local community, such as by supplying homeware kits to women leaving the refuge for more permanent accommodation, making and distributing breast care cushions for women after surgery, providing Christmas gifts to local women in need, and supplying toiletry bags to the hospital and local charity shops.

You don’t need to be a member of a Zonta club to contribute to Zonta’s efforts to improve the lives of women and girls. Service projects always need money – your donation to Zonta’s work in general or to a specified local or internal project is welcomed. Consider buying a ticket in our Melbourne Cup trifecta or hand-knitted rug raffle.
