Exceptional Sewing Skills

In June 2020, International Justice Mission (IJM) and the Philippine National Police rescued a deaf and mute 27-year-old online sexual exploitation victim and her two children. They were admitted to the Blessed House for immediate care.

The rescued victim also attended Blessed Project’s Sewing Livelihood Program as part of her restoration. Through working on sewing orders from local clients, the sewing staff observed great potential in her. She worked diligently and could easily pick up what the staff members were teaching and demonstrating to her. She is very particular with the quality of her output, and calls out and helps the other women as well as the staff if they overlooked some sewing techniques which will compromise the quality of the garments.

Her disability and her past does not hinder her from having a positive outlook in life. On the contrary, she works hard towards rebuilding a life of dignity for her and her children.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

Your monthly support of USD 40 / AUD 48 will help support the women and children at the Blessed Project through the rehabilitation process, and bring restoration while they rebuild their lives.
You can also join us this June in our global fundraising event – STOP TRAFFICKING 5K.
