Fulltime volunteers and teachers at the London Kabbalah Centre
On Sunday June 5th 2011, the London Kabbalah Centre organized a team of volunteers to perform an afternoon of beauty sessions for women at the Croydon Women’s Aid Hostel in Greater London.
Croydon Women’s Aid Hostel is a charitable organization that provides specialist services for women and children fleeing domestic abuse. The purpose of the event was to help vulnerable women – most of whom are single mothers and living in hiding – gain back their confidence and femininity while showing them that they are not alone or forgotten.

A professional makeup artist shared her beauty knowledge and skills with each woman, relaying professional tips and tricks of the trade, as well as a mini makeover for all. Each woman also received a facial treatment, oil massage and goodie bag filled with premiere organic skin care products.
Rounding off the day, a buffet filled with fresh fruits, vegetables and tea were made available to the women as they enjoyed aromatic oils and calming music.
During the event, many volunteers openly discussed why they choose to volunteer and give back to people in need. One volunteer shared her experience as a single mother and how Kabbalah changed her life, helping her to overcome the difficulties life brought her way.
Words of gratitude were shared throughout the event as well as in a personal letter from Croydon Women’s Aid Hostel:
I wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to you and all the volunteers who made Sunday such a special day for the women!! They all enjoyed it very much and looked so relaxed and happy. Could you please give our thanks to all the volunteers who helped? And a big, big thank you to you for organizing it all, and on behalf of the staff team I thank you.
