Women Of the World volunteers visit families from different countries. One of the apartment for family was full with mold and the carpets for bedrooms were so wet. WoW volunteers contacted the landlord but there was no response from her at first, then the landlord claimed it is the way ‘these immigrants like to live.’ So Women of the World went to the housing authorities and to the health department to help the family.
It was hard to get everyone’s attention but the wonderful volunteers didn’t stop until they get help to the family. Despite our focus to empower women in education and
employment, there is still a great deal of need in critical service that we are meeting at Women of the World.
