Visit to a Medical Museum; Plastic Surgeon Makes Healing Trips to Vietnam; Help for Female Veterans


 

By VOA

Welcome to THIS IS AMERICA in VOA Special English. I'm Steve Ember.

And I'm June Simms. This week on our program, we tell about a group home designed to help female veterans get a new start. We also learn about a museum that explores the history of medicine in the United States. And later, we hear from a Veitnamese immigrant who is helping improve lives with plastic surgery.

Ozora Cassanova could never have imagined becoming homeless a year ago.

Life changed for the United States National Guard member when she lost her job, separated from her husband, ran out of money and was removed from her home. Luckily, she heard about Final Salute's transitional home for female veterans.

Ms. Cassanova moved into the large, six-bedroom house near Washington six months ago. She says she found more than just a shelter.

"You get assistance with your resume. You could get like a life coach or a mentor. You get a regular financial assistance like supply, household supply, food supply."

That security made it possible for Ozora Cassanova to again work toward her goals. She wants to find a job, go back to school and be on her own. She says living with other women who have also experienced difficult times is valuable.

"From their experiences they'll say 'ok' --- it's like a mentor in a sense, so they help you make wiser decisions as well --- so they say 'ok. I did that and I went through that.' We learn from eachother."
