Action Kivu follow up!

It’s been just over two months since the Action Kivu sewing workshop fundraiser that I held right here on my blog. I’m sure you all remember that we raised $10,510!! So impressive!

We are lucky enough to be able to concretely see the fruits of our giving through some photos of the women in the workshop with their new machines that our fundraiser bought them.   Because of our fund raising they have also been able to move the workshop to a much safer location.



It’s pretty great to know that together we’ve done some real good here!  And we’ll be doing it all over again next year!

Meanwhile, please remember that Action Kivu is always taking donations. Perhaps you can set up a monthly donation? It can be small! And if you have more time than money, maybe your guild would like to raise some money with a charity quilt?   Or perhaps you’d like to throw a bake sale at your church?   Any amount helps these women who have been through so much and who are improving their lives with sewing.

    Thank you so much for the update. Those pictures just make my day. Such beautiful women. It must feel good to be independent and to care for your family.
