The Quincy-based nurse, who is assistant professor of international studies at Chamberlain College of Nursing, will distribute dresses to young girls and women on behalf of the local effort of Dress a Girl Around the World. The program, under the umbrella of the nondenominational Christian organization Hope 4 Women International, provides not only a pretty garment, but protection for the girl wearing it, "Village pastors tell us that a girl wearing a new dress presents an appearance that she is well cared for and may discourage would be predators," according to the organization's website. "We attach our Dress a Girl label on the outside of each dress sending an additional message that each girl is under the care of an organization, giving her additional protection from those who would harm her." Greenville resident Leah Almquest has brought the program to Plumas County. Once a month local women meet at the Quincy library to assemble dress packets and to sew. Many belong to the United Methodist Women and it was during that group's monthly luncheon Aug. 20 that the dresses were given to Sawchuk. Sawchuk became a nurse in 1995 with the goal of working in foreign locales as often as possible. She has worked in Honduras, Peru, Albania, Romania, India, Afghanistan and Kenya -- to name just a few destinations. She holds a master's in nursing education and is working on her doctorate. In her position with the Chamberlain College of Nursing, she will organize and lead trips to foreign countries so that student nurses can experience a more global approach to medicine. Sawchuk's travel provides just the type of opportunity the local women need to ensure that their dresses are delivered to those who need them. While Sawchuk's delivery will go to Central America, another bundle of dresses recently was transported to Kenya through a :onnection with Quincy Rotary. Gloria Boland, one of the vomen who sews for the project, shared a letter that Quincy Rotary received regarding the club's contribution to a school construction project and the dress delivery. It read in part: "The students and teachers were so excited to receive those gifts; they were talking about it for clays ... If you could pass along to the women who made the dresses how appreciative the students were. The only request is they would like some more because not everyone in school was able to receive one." That's just the encouragement the women need to continue their work. Anyone who is interested in learning more about, or becoming part of, the program can go to dressaroundtheworld.com, call Leah Almquest at 284-7235 or email her at lralmquest @frontier.net. sq It RENT DISCOUNT (for well-qualified tenant) www.plumasshopping.com You bring the food...v e have everything else!
