L to R:  Congressman Hice with Doris and Stan Aldrich

Athens, GA – On Monday, September 28, 2022, Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) presented the Hice Headliner Award to Doris Aldrich, founding president of Women to the World, an international nonprofit organization committed to improving the lives of women and children in developing countries.

“It would be nearly impossible for me to overstate the positive influence Doris has had in the lives of impoverished women throughout the world and the significance of her life’s work,” said Congressman Hice. “From gaining approval for a women’s hospital in Afghanistan, to teaching financial literacy in Burkina Faso, Africa, to establishing animal husbandry programs and micro enterprises in Kenya, Women to the World has provided timely, culturally appropriate responses to the critical needs of the women they serve. And the work continues. I’ve counted it an honor to work alongside Doris and her team in efforts to preserve the lives of people whom the Taliban are targeting in Afghanistan. I commend her strength, courage, and compassion, and I am proud to call Doris and her husband, Stan, friends.”

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help people with federal problems. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a person’s behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Please know that I cannot force an agency to act in favor of a constituent. However, I can help communicate the circumstances and request that they take appropriate actions to assist you.
