The first five sewing machines

…for the workshop in #Chyangsar were bought by Carola Gosch in Kathmandu together with Kusang Tamang. The necessary material also came from Kathmandu. The women assembled the simple but sturdy machines on site and were able to put their knowledge from the first training into practice. The first washable bandages have already been sewn!

Many thanks at this point to the #Soroptimists of SI Wien Vivata, who supported this project!
