Hi Sis,
Nice photograph you have here. Thank you for the work your organisation is doing. I applaud you for raising your voice, and helping with the implementation of laws and justice. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown highlighted the undesired effect of gender discrimination even more, hence we must continue to raise our voices like you have just done by sharing your first post on World Pulse.

Together, we can!

Congratulations and a warm welcome to the sisterhood! 'Nice to have you join us.

Keep writing and shining.

Love and hugs,
E. J.
