Church Women United of Grand Traverse Area invites the community to their event Celebrating World Community Day on November 2, 2017 11:00 AM –1:00PM at Bethlehem Lutheran Church 1050 Peninsula Drive Traverse City, MI 49686.
At this event, the women of Bethlehem Lutheran Church will share with us some of the stories of women at risk from around the world. Stories from Women at Risk, International, https://warinternational.org/ a humanitarian organization based in Grand Rapids. Their mission is to give voice to the silenced cries of the oppressed, to wrap arms of love around them and bring dignity into their brokenness. A woman at Risk International unites and educates to create circles of protection around those at risk through culturally sensitive, value-added intervention projects.
Every year individuals are sold into some form of exploitation. Fifty percent of them are children. Each child and woman has a unique story but common threads run among them – threads of poverty, abandonment, abuse and circumstances outside their control.
A potluck will follow the program.
