Our weekly sewing training for refugees on the Gold Coast Queensland is progressing well . Of the 12 refugees attending these classes, eight have never used a sewing machine, however on the first day they made a scrunchie and a bag. Congratulations to our Sewaid teacher Rhonda Whitton and her two assistants on the great work they are doing.
SewAID donated six new machines, two new overlockers and all the fabric and accessories, all of which were shipped up from Sydney. The refugee students are being selected by Thriving Multicultural Communities and the classes are being held at their premises in Labrador, Gold Coast. The lessons are being held every Saturday for 7 weeks.
