Dear Sharmilah

Welcome to the World Pulse community! You are now part of a thriving network of grassroots women leaders and supporters from more than 190 countries. See the Getting Started Guide to learn more about networking in our community:

It is amazing that you're addressing such and important problem in communities- the problem of addiction, and violence against women and children. Recently, I have been interested in the mental health consequences of Domestic violence on women and children. It is a Salient problem amongst African Immigrants in Los Angeles and I hope more attention, and funding for program is available. I encourage you to share via your journal entries the lessons and challenges of your work.

I look forward to hearing your voice in the community!
