SEWA is doing a GREAT job of offering social/emotional, legal and medical support to Asian-Indian community. They also have a wonderful network of volunteers that are their biggest strength. Me and my husband is one the volunteers and we see how much this needed in our Minneapolis community!!
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.
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.

Congratulations to all the SEWA volunteers and especially Ms. Raj for her exemplary leadership. You have indeed been a real advocate for women and a voice for minority concerns and solutions. Zehra Ansari Licensed Psychologist firstname.lastname@example.org
