Promoting Life and new life to the lifeless…
As ‘women of Hope’ we dream of bringing life in death situation - by spreading a ray of hope to our broken world.
We see death situation in every aspect of the life of people whom we serve in our mission (death situation of major illness, poverty, violence and abuse, unemployment, Pollution, terrorism, injustice, homelessness, migration, gender inequality, Religious Conflicts, environmental issues, suicide, HIV/AIDS, single parenting, child labour, human trafficking etc..). We go an extra mile to bring life to the lifeless in our mission.
We who are in the service of our fellow being are in the service of God and this little act of kindness helps us to make difference in the world to restore life and dignity to the people, especially the women and children who are the most vulnerable of the society today.
