Solar Panels and New Machines

Our new industrial grade sewing machines arrived via container this winter and were installed in the recently renovated space in Limbe. Unfortunately, the machines could not be adequately powered by the generator and the rising cost as well as sparse supply of gasoline necessitated a new plan. A trip to the Dominican Republic was made to purchase solar panels and a Haitian electrician installed them on the third story roof of the building. Once the machines were functioning, a lesson was given to all the seamstresses in how to operate the new machines. New projects for construction include mens/boys boxers and surgical caps.
