Nika, I have no words to describe the dedication with you work as a community leader. You are soo good in that. For me as a new comer in this country and a full time home maker, you are the source of latest information for me. I really thanks to the day I decided to join WASEMA Friendship Cafe. It gives me immense mental support that I have a group of ladies around me who are always there to guide me, support me, motivate me, help in spreading joy and making others healthy. 😍😍
Its always interesting to know from every lady in the group.
Thanks alot.... Hope our relation will make further strong bonds....😍😍
