On a more personal note...Leslie sponsors a "sister" through the Women for Women organization. As a sponsor, Leslie is helping a women survivor of war rise above overwhelming obstacles, and build a new life for herself and her family. This sponsorship not only allows Leslie and her sister to communicate, but also enables her sister to enroll in a life-changing program through the Women for Women organization, and gives her access to the tools she needs to improve her life. You too can sponsor a woman survivor of war, or simply send your well wishes in an online note, and let them know they are not forgotten. Send your note HERE.
