Seeds of Hope (2021)
Seeds of Hope follows a passionate Hmong community leader as she helps refugee families navigate the COVID pandemic, while planting seeds for a hopeful future. For more than a decade, Mayhoua Moua has worked to address high rates of chronic disease among Southeast Asian American women in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. But when COVID-19 hit, she pivots to meet the community's needs. We witness Mayhoua's heroic work to help refugees from Myanmar to survive, adapt, and thrive.
