Methodist Community Livelihood Center

The Methodist Community Livelihood Center is training women in different barangays how to sew. One of their trainees is a differently-abled person.

Despite her disability she struggles to learn how to sew. She's from another municipality and stays in this small boutique of the Methodist pastor's wife who is herself a very good, quality dressmaker.

She is a very good craftswoman. She has no left hand and no left foot. Her left thigh is attached to a dilapidated artificial leg.

This paper folding duck is her creation.

The man behind the woman is Pastor Roselle Panta of the Methodist Church of Margen, Ormoc City. This small boutique that his wife is renting is home to women undergoing dressmaking training under her.
