There are two new Sewing Livelihood Centers opened by a good Samaritan called Roberto Martinez in Ormoc City, Philippines. He is a farmer by profession (landlord/haciendero, that is), a businessman and passionate in helping the less fortunate.
After learning that TCF Ormoc has sewing machines available for less-fortunate women in the barangays (villages), he came, got the sewing machines that are just sitting around waiting for some souls to help them come to life, and had the sewing machines serviced.
With the machines, two ministries sprang to life: Christian Sewing Ministry - Ormoc City and Christian Sewing Ministry - Inopacan.
