Amy Woodell Bardi's heart for helping others grew after visiting Zambia in 2010 for missions. While loving on orphans in Lusaka, Zambia, she was struck by the overwhelming need. But even more impactful was the need of the women: the need to feel loved, accepted, treasured as they deserve to be. She left Africa feeling burdened to reach out and help the widows. Through faith, she took a giant leap and founded Clothed in Hope in the beginning of 2011.
