Women who sew traditional Dell clothes were assisted by Meg to continue their work. Most of the women who sew the clothes are either single parents or on low incomes. Meg was in the street one day and got talking to a TV crew who were filming the ladies and explained that they no longer had a working sewing machine to do their work for much needed income. Meg assisted by purchasing a sewing machine and an iron so the women could continue their work to support and feed their families. Meg hopes the sewing machine makes lots of traditional clothes to improve the lives of these talented single mums and their children.
Support for single mothers has always been an issue dear to me, however, it isn’t one shouldered by women alone. In the ger districts of UB, __, a father of two, struggles to support his family after his wife passed away from lung cancer two years ago. With a portion of our proceeds, we provided his children with school materials and some financial support for their education.
