Welcome ASAS to Seoul YWCA on 24th November


Seoul YWCA Member Activity Team organized a volunteering program called "Dream Sharing" that makes baby hats for Burmese refugees. The special participants came from
Ambassadors' Spouses Association in Seoul(ASAS) composed of various countries' ambassadors' spouses. They are focused on cultural exchange activities and volunteering in  South Korea.

There were seven ASAS members taking part in the Dream Sharing; Aissatou NDIAYE from Senegal, Mah Manesh Taherian from Iran, Nehal Selim Hanna Egypt, Chisanga Kapumpa from Zambia, Sarah Bile from Cote d'lvoire, Raheela Nasrullah Khan from Pakistan, Susana Yturry from Peru.




Although some of them were not used to sewing and making hats, eventually completed adorable baby hats with Seoul Y committee members' help. These hats will be sent to Maehongson where Burmese refugees are living in. It was such a lovely international volunteering activity with ASAS members. Seoul YWCA wants to show our gratitude for their participation.
