The World Federation of Methodist and Uniting Church Women has been granted consultative status as an NGO within the United Nations, serving on the Economic and Social Council. In addition the Federation has been awarded consultative status with UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund. Representatives are appointed to work with the UN in New York and Geneva. They represent the World Federation in formulating legislation (e.g.. UN Rights of the Child), in implementing Human Rights and by channeling information in both directions. The World Federation was represented at the UN World Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995. Please support our UN representatives and their work both spiritually in prayer and practically in commitment.
