[box title=”January 5, 2015 – First Meeting of 2015 with Hope Project Director and Staff in Delhi, India. “][/box]
Samiur Rahman, the executive director, is wonderful. He is able to to decipher each person’s code to really understand how they would like to see the Core Wellness work take place. Each woman in the meeting has her own expression and is listened to.
I am excited, as what we are planning this year will catapult us into participating in the bigger picture of this community. Here, many families are living in one room with all the children, and often no running water. To see a woman experience relief of stress and body pain through stretching and moving in a simple way is its own work of art, and a privilege.
Tomorrow I will go to CanSupport where we work with palliative cancer patients, their families, and the Home Care Teams to begin scheduling this year’s expanded programs. Will keep you posted! ~ Zuleikha
[box title=”January 8, 2015 – Boarding the Joy Train”][/box]Today, we were visiting a ‘village’ inside of the vast city of Delhi, with the Hope Project’s Mobile Health Unit. As you can see, it is built under mountains of garbage…I will be going here every week to work with the women’s groups and children’s support classes. Here we go, it starts again—the joy train!
