SAHARA - Asian Women In Distress
Asian Women in distress, especially those who are the victims of domestic violence need support from their families, extended families and the community at-large.
In response to the needs of Asian women in our communities, The Women's Caucus of the Asian American Advisory Board and the Women's Fund of Miami-Dade County Women's Advocacy Project have formed Sahara - a group of concerned women in the Asian community working to support Asian Women in distress.
