Women for Women International

A letter came from Women for Women, informing me that Naomi, the young woman my monthly donations have been sponsoring in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is finished the program and another lady has been registered.

Sifeta, in the second photo, lives in Bosnia and was born the same year as me, 1959.

Naomi is the same age as Emil, 22, and is raising three of her own children and a nephew. I'm looking forward to the report detailing how the Women for Women program has helped her and her family.

And I wonder how Sifeta is pronounced.

Have you considered sponsoring a woman like yourself in another country? Except that she is a survivor of war and has witnessed and suffered violent atrocities, and cannot always successfully provide adequate food and shelter for herself and her family, she could be you.


  1. that's a good project. There are so many ways, so many needs, so little response.

    BTW, thanks for the info on Heart---I missed it, but David heard it and thinks there's a podcast.

  2. Lorna,
    The program Q usually replays weeknights at 10:00 after the hourly news, too.

  3. Thanks for the info, will have a look at it.
