Rebecca and Veronica
Rebecca lives in a tiny town in Mexico called Mesa Rica Dos. Her husband works in the fields as a farmer, working 12 hours a day to earn about $5 daily. Rebecca taught herself to sew as a young girl because she wanted to make clothes for her doll. We learned about Rebecca through a friend who had started a ministry to the wives and moms in this poverty stricken town. This week, we partnered with an organization called DriButts who gives reusable diapers in third- world countries. The founders Micheal and Starla traveled to Mexico and they helped teach Rebecca how to sew the diapers. Now, Rebecca and her friend Veronica will have an opportunity to sew the diapers to give out in her community, and they will have an opportunity to earn an income from making the diapers.
