On Sunday June 4th, a lovely June afternoon, the Hackensack Satellite Chapter of WFWP in New Jersey met to more fully understand the mission and history of the United Nations and WFWP's responsibilities as an NGO in General Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations.To begin, Mrs. Cynthia Nakai, City Chairwoman for Hackensack, explained the origin and meaning of the United Nations Flag. The flag was established in December 1946. It was designated to be light blue, the color of peace; as opposed to red, the color of war. The map on the flag is a flat projection of the world, with no one country given more prominence over another. Two wreaths of peace surround the map, further emphasizing…

After lunch we were given a tour of the facilities. When we got to the children’s play center, Katherine Duncan picked up a hoola hoop and…

The Northern Virginia (NOVA), Chapter of WFWP decided to conduct a month-long food drive in March of 2017.

Several high school students went door-to-door collecting food and money contributions and were very successful.Collecting food for the Food Pantry…

The spirit of the Women Helping Women initiative that began in the Arizona Chapter of WFWP and spread from there to various other states this past year also recently reached Northern California. The San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of WFWP just concluded their own project to collect gently used handbags for homeless women, which we filled with toiletries and personal items. We started collecting them in March by reaching out to our community and friends. WFWP planning committee member Liz Beurgi collected many purses from her yoga students who were so happy to do something for the homeless women. We received many donations of items to put into the purses and also purchased many other essential items.On April 12th, Yong Sung Leal, who works at…

Have you ever had a cup of coffee with someone and paused as they tell you what they have been up to? That was the reaction I had when I heard my friend Claire Haider talk about her experiences with Elizabeth Yamada in Paterson bringing 650 coats to shelters and needy people.I observed her porch filled with jackets and sweaters waiting to be delivered and heard her stories about working in soup kitchens such as Eva's kitchen on Main Street in Paterson.Remembering her hard work, I set a date aside to honor Claire and Elizabeth at a WFWP luncheon. We met Sunday January 22 at the La Havana 59 Restaurant in Moonachie, New Jersey. The restaurant is known locally for its delicious food and the…

As I reflect back on the Women’s Federation for World Peace and the Washington, DC Metro Area Day of Service on October 20, 2016; I must say, participating in the set-up was fun. Although there were several ladies there, one stood out to me among the group: Minister Chi Mauuso.Minister Chi is so dedicated to the Day of Service initiative that I cannot even start to express how much. When she mentioned the push brooms, shovels, rakes, and other items she was responsible for bring to the program, it never crossed my mind how many and how heavy the items would be. Now I know, after assisting her and others with packing the heavy items in a car after the program and ensuring their delivery…

As I look back on the first Day of Service project in Washington, DC, in October 2013, I saw how we planted a seed and it began to develop. At the second Day of Service in October 2014, we watched as the spiritual growth of the project started to mature. Then at the third Day of Service in October 2015, we had matured and everything went as planned. This year's project, the fourth Day of Service, was held on October 20, at the same location we have used for all four years: the Fourth District Police Department, in northwest Washington, DC. This day was somehow special. There was a sweet, sweet spirit that filled the Community Room that day.I was honored to be the emcee…
