AS part of International Women's Day QCWA Capricornia Division president Arlene Roberts put on a display showcasing the wares and the history of the group.
An international morning tea last Saturday attracted many women interested in joining - and one QCWA project caught their eye. The QCWA puts together birthing kits sent each year to the Solomon Islands and PNG which help women give birth in a clean environment. Last year, the group also sent 1000 kits to East Timor.
"The birthing kits contain items which help women in the fields to have a clean area to give birth to their children.
"This cuts down on sepsis, which saves lives - mothers and babies," Mrs Roberts says.
The kits are sent with the help of Rotary.
Mrs Roberts says women were interested in the project and she had been left with two membership packs out of 100 by the end of the day.
She says the QCWA is a way for women new to the area to make friends, learn new skills and improve their language. She says children are welcome at meetings and all women.
