Wow! What a great organization. I remember watching the the news coverage of the raping and killing of an Indian woman last year and was truly sadden by that event. The media fails to mention organization such as this one, leaving one to wonder what is be done to help improve conditions in India.Its is promising to see that there are women in India to take a stand on all these tragic events. I praise and admire Christin Mary for her achievements, for not only helping woman but all the people of India. This is a great example of Marco social work.
