News from Rosalind
Time has passed so fast and it is two years since I was in US... While in KL am mostly involved in migrant work; helped set up a shelter home for abused women and recently babysitting for a friend whom I am staying with. In Pakistan, cannot move around ... so I stay home and do a lot of sewing. On my last visit managed to finish 100 potholders ... and 50 pocket organizers for a hospice organization called Kasih (meaning love/ compassion) for fund raising. Am now doing a project with a Home of Hope in Bangalore, sewing teaching samples and finishing a quilt for fundraising. ... Anyone interested can Google Home of Hope or T. Raja the founder who became a CNN hero 15 years later. My brother and I had the opportunity of sponsoring his trip to KL in Feb. and I am going to Bangalore on May 7 to 17 to teach quilting, hoping to start a self help project. Rabbi is taking leave to also go with me. So far, have got sponsors for 3 sewing machines and I have bought some basic sewing supplies. Please help create awareness.
