2nd Donation for Ormoc launched

Carol and Miss Poppy are seen here urging their fellow Australians to donate to the Textile Clothing Footwear Ormoc. Sewing machines and materials are intended to be used by the 25 Community Livelihood Centers in 21 villages in the city of Ormoc.

TCF Western Australia already shipped one 40-foot container van full of sewing machines, assorted off-cut fabric and many other sewing materials in November, 2007. These gave rise to the 25 CLCs.

The second donation is intended to bring the project up one step - product development.

Already a few designers and garments makers have registered their help. There are offers of free service to hold a lecture on design, another on pattern making and yet another to train the local dressmakers of TCF Ormoc to learn better sewing applications.

TCF Ormoc and TCF Western Australia welcome all those who can donate cash for travel expenses of these good samaritans to help our dressmakers in Ormoc.

Please contact Carol Hanlon in Perth and Jean Justimbaste in Ormoc.

God Bless You!
