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…

On a crisp December morning, Minister Chi Mauuso was sweeping in front of her house as is part of her daily routine to keep the neighborhood clean and sparkling. One of her neighbors from across the street came hurrying over to her, “Minister Chi, Minister Chi, come quickly, there’s a reporter over there who wants to know about our neighborhood and you are the person most qualified to speak for us. Come quickly. Here, I’ll take your broom and finish your sweeping for you!”Minister Chi crossed the street and introduced herself to Ms. Audrey Hoffer, a freelance writer for the Washington Post.

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…

They set off to beautify historic Georgia Avenue in the nation’s capital on Thursday, October 20.Coming from three schools in the DC and Maryland area, the 40 students had just had their minds fortified by several inspirational talks on volunteer service by representatives of WFWP USA.

Serving Mother Earth

October 31st, 2016
Saturday, September 24 was National Public Lands Day, and Texans came out in full force to support the cause! Members of the Dallas, Texas Chapter of WFWP joined hundreds of other volunteers to attend our Mother Earth, cleaning and collecting garbage and recyclables from one of Irving's city parks.So many people came, especially young people from all over the city. It was a moving scene and a testimony that people really care about our environment. We were very happy to participate; and, at the end, we shared lunch and each received a free mug and a bag of goodies. In all, it was a beautiful experience with young and old, working together to serve our Mother Earth.
