“With hope filled imagination, let us draw near to those who are broken-hearted and oppressed. They are our leaders. Their smiles and courage point the way.”
"At the House of Peace I am surrounded by wonderful women from all over the world. They have suffered so much, yet still, they love life and care for each other"
" The House of Peace helped me forget how lonely I was and taught me how to smile 24/7. It will always be in my heart, in my life, in my journey."
