Wakeup Call host Aron Bender’s #womancrushwednesday this week is Somy Ali.
She has an amazing resume: Bollywood star, journalist, documentary filmmaker. But she’s also a sexual abuse survivor, and has founded No More Tears — a group helping victims of trafficking and domestic abuse, as well as children with special needs who have come to the country seeking medical treatment.
Listen to the interview.
NMT is not just a non-profit organization, it goes much deeper. I think of it as a family or a strong team. At the heart of it there are people helping others, changing lives and futures, whether locally or globally, in the most beautiful ways. I’ve witnessed the passion and drive of Somy (and others at NMT), it’s changed my life in the most wonderful way and that’s why I love and care about NMT and those they help. And why I now volunteer for NMT. In other circumstances, it could be you or me that need NMT.
SKILL Foundation’s partnership with No More Tears marks a new chapter in our endeavors to change the lives of disadvantaged children in India. We are excited about this collaboration to build a school together in an Indian village. We look forward to leveraging No More Tears’ rich experience of non-profit work and community support in the US for a meaningful impact on the lives of underprivileged children miles away in India.
I am proud to work with No More Tears by offering pro bono immigration legal services to foreign national victims of domestic violence and children in need of life-saving medical care. From the minute I first met No More Tears founder, Somy Ali, I was blown away by her infectious passion to help society’s most vulnerable people. I have heard survivors call her “an angel” and say she was “sent from heaven.” Somy thanks me all the time for the work that I do for NMT, but in reality I am grateful to her for giving me the opportunity to take part in something so special.
We at Ferguson Dental are committed to treating our patients as a whole as we help them attain a healthy dental state. We strongly believe in the mission of No More Tears as they help survivors lead safe, healthy, hopeful and happy lives. It is an honor for us to be included in the healing of these strong individuals. If everyone does just a little bit each day to make this world a better place, together with small contributions, we can achieve this goal. ‘Many small steams make one big river.
No More Tears provides free and high quality, information, assistance and advocacy to members of our community who are in dire need. Somy Ali and her team of motivated and dedicated volunteers work hard to help those without a voice, overcome obstacles and go on to become self sufficient. As an attorney I recognize the need for the types of services that NMT offers and applaud the organization for the execution of its mission. I strongly recommend that anyone who has a chance to contribute or get involved in this great organization.
