Sanitary Pads for the Young Women of La Libertad

Thank you to HIS Handiwork Guild, the Long Beach-based group that makes and donates washable reusable sanitary pads.  Muchas gracias, Nancy and Irene!

HIS Handiwork Guild donated 100 pads to the young women of La Libertad.

At first, we didn't know if the women would like and use them.  It turns out that the villagers loved the pads and the fabric patterns!  We plan to take 200 more the next time we visit the village in August.  Would you like to help us?  Take a trip to the Amazon and bring some with you!  Please contact us for more information at

From Nancy, one of the coordinators of the group:

"HIS Handiwork Guild gathered yesterday to continue making Washable Reusable Sanitary Pads.  We meet approximately once a month for two days, so we will be sewing today as well.  In 3 years we have made 23,000 Pads that have gone to 19  countries around the world!  It truly is a blessing for all involved. We have more fun than we should be allowed to have and the girls receiving the Pads are blessed beyond measure!  The need for these is dire! The Pads allow girls to stay in school and just be able to leave their homes."
The group works in Long Beach, California.

In addition to pads, we have had donations of baby clothes for the mothers and babies of the village.  Thank you, Crystal and family!
