Meet Katherine Kung, a Voss Foundation supporter, and one of the committee members for our sixth annual Women Helping Women Boston luncheon. Her New York City-based eveningwear label, KUNG KATHERINE, is also sponsoring the event. Katherine took time to share with us why Women Helping Women, Voss Foundation, and access to water are important to her.
“Women Helping Women” means supporting women whose needs have gone unheard or brushed aside. Voss Foundation has allowed me and members of the committee to join forces and make a global impact. The ability to provide clean water and change lives is a tremendous breakthrough that I am honored to be a part of. I feel a natural instinct to understand the plight of women from all walks of life, and provide any support that I can.
Voss Foundation identified the most important need for African women: clean water… I am reminded of a quote by Anne Sweeny: ‘To have influence, you really don’t need to have power. But what you need more than anything else is to have that almost uncanny understanding of what matters to people.’ Water has the power to initiate medical and social development for families and communities… [and] access to water is a privilege that I believe everyone should enjoy. Therefore, I am more than happy to support Voss Foundation.”
We are so grateful to Katherine and all our supporters. Learn more about Women Helping Women, and click here to see the invitation and join Katherine and the rest of the Women Helping Women Boston committee at our luncheon on June 8th.
