Unfortunately, the situation in the region around Olongapo in the Philippines, which was heavily affected by Corona, has hardly improved in recent months. For this reason, the authorities have ordered that training courses can only take place digitally until at least the end of the year. Since a digital format is unfortunately not practicable for our tailoring training courses, we also have to pause our training program until at least the end of the year. However, the employees of our local partner organization continue to use the time and available materials to produce urgently needed protective clothing for hospitals as well as masks, which are then donated.
Of course, your donations will not be lost in the process: as soon as we are able to welcome trainees in our sewing center again, your donation will be used to enable a person to lead a better and self-determined life and you will then receive a personal thank-you card from “your” participant, as promised.
