The Women of Vision legacy continues…

Early on October 5th, a Saturday morning in Newport Beach, CA, 10 girls gathered at the home of Maddy Hall, the granddaughter of Beverly Peters, one of the very first women of WOV Orange County. Maddy gathered these young women together to assemble 50 of World Vision’s Women’s Hygiene Kits. These kits provide basic personal hygiene necessities for women affected by poverty, homelessness, or disaster in the United States. As the girls assembled the kits, they left encouraging notes inside of them with the message that someone is caring during difficult times. These Hygiene Kits will go to Heritage House, a local charity where underprivileged, troubled women can go, to find their faith and seek help.

You can build a kit and help women in your community who need encouragement and hope. The items in the kit provide practical help and a vital message of hope. To organize a Women’s Hygiene Kit build, contact your chapter leaders or the Women of Vision Helpdesk at womenofvision@worldvision.org or 1.877.968.4968.

    Our actions, no matter how great or small, are like tossing a pebble into a pond – we create many ripples. I can’t wait to see how many women will benefit from these kits as well as the beautiful words of encouragement. Way to go, WOV Orange County!

    That’s great to know about hygiene kit. It would really help poor people to meet essential daily needs and having it with them will make their lives easier.
