In an attempt to condemn the violence (racial and secular) against women, Presbyterian women are determined to celebrate the 25th day of every month as Orange Day. United Nations organization Secretary Ban Ki-Moon has launched the campaign UNiTE to End Violence against Women. Observing Orange day on the 25th of each month is a periodic reminder to the society to bring an end to violence, so as to allow the younger generations witness and support the cause in their building years. Leading to a society of equity.
As a part of 2017-18 Presbyterian Women Synod Mission Project, we joined hands with Lily’s Place. Lily’s place was opened in October 2014, first of its kind. It helps victims of Neonatal Abstinence syndrome (NAS) in the United States. NAS is a group of conditions caused when a baby withdraws from certain drugs it is exposed to in the womb before birth. Babies may show signs of fever, jaundice, fussiness, loose motion, breathing problems, problems with sucking etc. Lily’s place is an organization Angela Davis, Misty Musser, Marilyn Murdoc, Olivia Meade, are some of the names facilitating their services and knowledge to the infants coming to Lily’s place.
