For instance, AWN has implemented various initiatives including Project “Make a Family Happy” which raised funds to feed 500 families in the face of COVID-19 pandemic, Free Breast Cancer Screening for AWN Members at selected locations, Zaron Virtual Experience with AWN, free online makeup training, and the ongoing partnership with Genesis House to support vulnerable young women who have been sexually abused, exploited and trafficked,” the statement said.
