I am impressed with how much SEWA is able to accomplish with very limited resources. SEWA serves the vulnerable and under served population from South Asian descent. I have met many people who have benefited from the SEWA and they all appreciate the fact that SEWA is sensitive their cultural needs. They all felt that without SEWA services they would have been lost and completely confused as to what their rights and options are. SEWA bridges the gap between the government services and the new immigrant population who is new to this culture and system. I am glad that I have had the opportunity to serve this population through SEWA programs.

They hold health clinics; hold social events whereby the seniors meet other seniors of same ethicinity. Many of the seniors are home bound since they are immigrants. SEWA-AIFW also provides transportation. They are always looking for ways to help and support the community.

I have noticed how the health clinics once per month, helps the seniors to monitor their vital signs. The social events bring great joy to the seniors because now they can enjoy the company of people their own age and similar experiences. Most of these seniors have left their homeland to be close to their children and now in old age miss the company of the people their own age.

The organization is always growing. They truly care about the welfare of their clients. I think the next project should be to have daycare type of facilities for these seniors.

I am really pleased with the performance of SEWA_AIFW INC; I really command their volunteerism and service to others, and especially to older adults and for the women’s development. We had an experience to participate in older adults Holiday Lunch last year and program was exceptionally good. Short, nice, educational and well entertaining and organized. I happened to be the volunteer for this event and now I committed my self to be there for every program. I am also impressed how this organization offers health care service to the community. I sincerely wish them a great success in their mission......Thanks

SEWA-AIFW is providing a much needed service for people who are not used to being heard, and might not be aware that there is hope and help for them. When you are in trouble, it is such a relief to know that someone cares and wants to listen to and help you. SEWA-AIFW not only provides direct help, but also works as liaison to legal and health assistance for those that are not that familiar with the American environment, their rights, ... Truly a remarkable organization in what it is trying to do and what it does with what funding we have.
