New GFWC International Affiliate in Uganda
July 26, 2018
The GFWC Cam Kwoki Woman’s Club was formed by a small group of South Sudanese women who were based in a refugee camp in Uganda after being forced to leave South Sudan when civil war broke out. They started out by creating handicraft items which they sold to improve their circumstances. When their funds ran out, they received support from the Partnership for Community Development, a partnership which included GFWC Maine. The club meets every week and works on activities and projects. Every member is treated with respect regardless of their position, race, or tribe. Their goals are to expand their businesses, start an orphanage program, and support people in need, especially mothers with health issues. Welcome GFWC Cam Kowki! GFWC is so happy to have you.
Lorraine Gorham is one busy clubwoman. Not only is she a wife, mother, and grandmother, she is also a member of seven clubs and serves as a club president and state chairman.
