NEW YORK (OCN) — The parents of a 7-year-old Bronx girl, Laniya Ndabaze, will be suing the YWCA (Young Women’s Christian Association) of Schenectady for US$25 to US100 million.
The parents says that the YWCA, which manages the swimming pool owned by the city, did not have sufficient lifeguards on duty the day Laniya drowned in the summer of 2007.
The YWCA advocates for young women’s leadership, peace, justice, human rights and the sustainable development, both on a grassroots and global scale. It is the oldest and one of the largest women’s organizations in the world.
The YWCA is independent of the YMCA, though many local YMCA and YWCA associations have amalgamated into YM/YWCAs or YMCA-YWCAs, and belong to both organizations while providing the programs of each.
To find out when the pool is available, please visit the website or call (518) 374-3394.
