A new video is now available on BHC's YouTube channel: "Women's Work" is a wonderful tribute to Belgian women just in time for Mother's Day.  This video features the meaning of “Women’s Work” in the Belgian communities. In the early days, “women’s work” was all work! Be sure to subscribe to our channel - more videos will be released soon!
