Sirona has been helping the Episcopal women of the Northern California Arch Dioscese get dresses to little girls in Haiti for several years now. Nearly 600 dresses have been made by these Episcopal women and deliverd to Sirona to Haiti for distribution. Due to our strong networks throughout rural Haiti it is not difficult for us to deliver the dresses.
The advocacy work we do generally takes the form of connecting resources to children in communities we work with. For us, this work is joyful. It fills us up, and cheers us up when the other work gets hard. Advocacy projects don't feel like work... they feel like sharing an afternoon with a bunch of very happy little girls. After that we always remember who we really are working for, and we are motivated to take back on the other issues and charge forward again.
