Hurricane Irma can’t stop our seamstresses

As Hurricane Irma threatened the northern coast of Haiti, many of our seamstresses were busy finishing an order of 158 menstrual pad kits to be delivered in October as well as an order for 20 large tote bags that required an industrial size machine for stitching the canvas type fabric. The sewing center is near completion, which will allow for a central location to collect the finished products as well as store the fabric. Ellen Schroeder was able to connect with the local Haitian Rotary group, who have agreed to be part of our rotary grant application. Unfortunately, due to the weather and flooding in some areas, the seamstresses from the two locations were not able to meet in CapHaitian and see the progress on the sewing center.
