The trustees of WWR are all committed Christians and have compassion for the women in their care. They want to do something constructive and positive to help women as so many women in Nepal are homeless, sick, outcasts, lack possessions, and are hungry. At WWR we seek to alleviate these problems with the help of our supporters. We wish to show the love of Christ to the people of Nepal.
