I spent so much time dedicated to the YWCA in Greewncih, raising funds from donation for years. After putting my heart and soul into to this organization, I was greatly disappointed by how they handle their affairs and even more how they treat their employees. In essence it is great organization, but awful politics overcome its principles and leave a terrible ache in one's heart.
