Woo Hoo! 1000 Women for the Nobel Peace Prize!




Today, UNIFEM and SCWO will jointly announce that THREE Singaporean women have been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Isn't that fabulous?!

What's even more exciting is a movement called "1000 Women For The Nobel Peace Prize" (www.1000peacewomen.org) where 1000 women collectively receive the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005.

In the last few months since we started WMD I've been moved (sometimes to near-tears) by the passion that Singaporean women have for children and women who are born into a life of poverty and who are forced into situations we wouldn't even put our worst enemies through. You are helping to bring peace into the lives of these children and women through your support.

For all the women (and men) who have donated their time and money to the fight against child sex tourism and sex trafficking, you are on my list of 1000.

"She extends her hand to the poor
Yes she reaches out her hands to the needy."
(Prov 31:20-21)
