Our sewing group of 4 women in Limbe has assembled the initial order of diapers to be sold in a local pharmacy. This is quite encouraging for our sewers, as the initial hesitation with this project concerned their ability to both sew and market the products.
In a few weeks, we will be shipping each woman a package that contains enough supplies to construct 50 diapers and 30 reusable menstrual pads. Due to the generosity of time and funds from local women, we have the majority of these kits cut and packed. 50 yards of flannel remains to be cut and we are hoping for 1-2 more gatherings to get this accomplished.
