During a trip to India in autumn, 1998, Martha Foerch saw firsthand the plight of women and girls in the state of Andhra Pradesh. Her experience led to the founding of the charitable association

                               "Shoshana– Help for women in need." 

 

The association is founded on the love of God; in the words of Jesus:

"Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me"  Matthew 25,40 ESV

The association’s declared intention: 

"The association has the duty to give women in developing countries help, so that they can help themselves. We help women and their families regardless of age, marital status, or religion. Through sewing centers: women gain knowledge and abilities; they also gain social skills. At medical centers: people get help in First Aid, besides they learn about hygiene and primary health care."
