Together as a community, we continue to do our part to keep each other safe, even if it means having to socially distance ourselves from our loved ones. And as a community that thrives on togetherness, this time can be especially challenging for those living with serious illness. In October Bayer’s own Wahine 2 Wahine (W2W) group, came together to provide messages of hope for those in need.
During its 4th Annual Statewide Meeting held earlier this month, women representing Bayer’s field crew, human resources, administration, communications, management and more, spent more than 20 hours hand crafting personal letters of hope and inspiration for patients and families currently in Hospice Maui and Navian Hawaii (formerly Hospice Hawaii) care, to help raise their spirits during these uncertain times.
Together, the women of W2W created more than 80 inspirational messages that were delivered to hospice patients on Oahu, Maui and Molokai.
W2W is made up of a diverse group of women from Oahu, Maui and Molokai who strive to empower women to embrace and share the essential connection between agriculture, food and family. This inspiring community of women not only engage in volunteerism and community service projects, but also provide learning opportunities to women in agriculture, mentorships and networking, as well as encourage young people to make the most of their education and future aspirations.
