A THIRD annual sewing day, making reusable sanitary towels for women and girls in refugee camps and poor areas of the world, distributed by the Pachamama Project, is to be held in Dilton Marsh Memorial Hall on Saturday 29th October, 10am until 4pm.
People are encouraged to drop in and help for as much or as little time as possible. At the two previous sewing days, the group managed to produce 100 pads in total and in April, the pads were made in time to join an urgent request for 16,000 pads to go to war-torn Ukraine. The group are now also hoping to donate pads to women in Pakistan, who have been displaced by the recent flooding disaster.
A spokesperson said, “If anyone who is interested can bring along their sewing machine, that would be a great help, but there is also the need for ironing and cutting out. There are plenty of ways in which one can help. The invite is to come along whether for a morning, afternoon or all day, and bring a packed lunch. Tea, coffee and cake will be available. This is a great opportunity to contribute to the needs of others around the world.”
