History of SWCDHH

Here at WADHH, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. Since 1991, we’ve been supporting our community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by financial, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts. Just imagine what we can achieve together!
