Mission
MAAWS for Global, Inc., is a cultural competent organization whose mission is to empower communities to maintain healthy lifestyles through education, training and action programs. Likewise, MAAWS seeks to combat health issues such as HIV/AIDS, Cancer, Hepatitis B, Cardiovascular and Surgical Diseases in New York City and Greater Hudson Valley by creating a multilingual bridge of education and cultural sensitivity within South Asian communities. These issues are ignored due to cultural, socio-economic and religious differences. We are also trying to lessen the social stigma and/or emotional trauma generally associated with the testing and treatment of these diseases. MAAWS, visualizing the consequences of ignorance in our communities, is reacting in order to prevent an alarming tragedy to occur to our loved ones. Education is the key to preventing this catastrophe.
