The Milwaukee Hmong women’s giving circle boasts an inspiring story of how it began and impressive progress over the course of its two years.
The circle grew out of an incident when a Hmong woman was killed by her estranged husband and there was no one to bury her. A group of Hmong women pooled their resources to pay for the woman’s burial.

It has so far raised $15,000 to donate as grants to support women from this Asian ethnic minority.
