Refugee Women’s Alliance held its 14th annual International Women’s Day Celebration at its main office in Seattle. The event featured ethnic foods and multicultural entertainment and activities, including an Ethiopian coffee demonstration, Vietnamese dance, and Henna hand painting.

A classroom in the main office was also named in honor of Maggie Sung, an employee who passed away from cancer on Oct. 21, 2009.

ReWA is a nonprofit organization that provides refugee and immigrant women and families with culturally and linguistically appropriate services. ♦
