The CCWM recently celebrated the International Women's Day 2023 and the Month of Women's History at the Upper County Community Center in Gaithersburg MD.
This amazing moment of gathering was made possible with the hard work of our volunteers of the planning committee and we are grateful for everyone who came celebrating our women.
Many dignitaries showed us once again their warm support by gracing us with their presence and we underlined they dedication of some of our most inspiring women that we are proud to count as dedicated members of the congolese community.
