This year the Fransız Fakirhanesi Bomonti will be the recipient of the IWI Women's Day Walkathon proceeds; and IWI will match the amount from the Social Responsibility Fund.
The Fransız Fakirhanesi Bomonti is an elder care residence run by the Little Sisters of the Poor in the historic Bomonti neighborhood of Istanbul. It serves over 80 multi-cultural and multi-faith senior citizens, mostly women, who have severely limited finances. Without relatives in close proximity the facility provides a much-needed home for its residents. The Fransız Fakirhanesi Bomonti is a longstanding partner with deep importance to our members, many of whom regularly volunteer and provide support to the Little Sisters.
