My Family Needs Support
The most important way WALY impacts the world, is to directly connect mother to mother. Caseworkers in war torn areas find mothers in the most dire situations. WALY connects them to mothers who are waiting to help by giving friendship, love, and financial aid. Our hope is that your WALYfamily relationship becomes a significant source of support and love for you and your family.
Here’s what you need to know:
WALY works hard to create a safe and secure environment where mothers can connect around the world. We will give you guidelines to follow that help to ensure your safety within WALY, and your sponsoring WALYmom will also be given rules to follow that will help keep you secure.
Before applying for a WALYfamily, be sure that you are ready for an addition to your life. These mothers want to get to know you and your family, they want to love and support you in what you are facing now, and are committed to love and support even when these times of hardship have passed. She will want to build a relationship of friendship and trust, so that you may be able to know that she is a true friend, and ready to help your family in the ways that mean the most to you.
She is going to want to help you financially. Know that there are financial limits placed for your security and safety. Your WALYmom is unable to send more than that amount, and may not be able to come close to it often. We will be instructing her to help as much as she is able, but know that she may have a family to take care of as well, and do not expect or anticipate any dollar amount, or frequency. Her primary role is to be a loving friend, and financial support is a secondary benefit.
WALY works to match you with a family who has children of similar ages, similar circumstances, or something you can relate on. Of course, there are women who would like to be a part of the WALYfamily program, who do not have children. Please indicate if you have a preference on the application below.
There will be a team guiding both sides of the conversation while it's new so that the relationship can grow and flourish. You will have a caseworker here, a caseworker will be helping the other WALYmom, and a translator on your conversation thread. Your caseworker will be available if any questions or issues arise. We will walk you, step by step, through the process of becoming truly connected. In these friendships that become family, there will not be discussed anything of a political nature, it is absolutely interpersonal only. WALY has seen many families blessed and enriched by this program, and we would love for you and your family to be included in those who connected in love and friendship.
