RISE & Shine Blog
Hear from our members across the state
On Saturday, March 31st, EMBARC Des Moines' Health Advocate, Lian Puii, and RefugeeRISE AmeriCorps member, Moriah Morgan, held a wellness day in partnership with Connections Matter and United Way. An art therapist, yoga instructor, and meditation expert volunteered their time to teach their practices to a group of ten women from the Burma community as a way to cope with stress and trauma. The women enjoyed these activities so much that they have requested that these experts hold workshops with other community groups. All in all a great way to spend a Saturday!
