This plate of figs, which is held by Palestinian Nadiya Zaqzuk, represents just a little of the bounty that her garden offers. Zaqzuk, a widow who needed a way to support her six children, can now grow vegetables and fruit in a greenhouse that the organization CARE provided for her. CARE's mission is to "tackle underlying causes of poverty so that people can become self-sufficient. Recognizing that women and children suffer disproportionately from poverty, CARE places special emphasis on working with women to create permanent social change."
The new US administration's electoral mission statement was "Yes We Can," and "Change." Now that the election is over, I've been looking for ways to carry out this mission. Do you support or volunteer with any organizations in your community that provide similar services to CARE?
