Margaret Mary Komuhendo stitched the pretty array of flowers and butterflies on this black velour purse with detachable wrist strap. The 10" x 9" purse has an outer zipper pocket, and inner patcvh pocket, and is lined with black/gold print.
Margaret Mary lives in southern Uganda, in the diocese of Rwenzori close to the Rwandan border – a particularly beautiful area of Uganda. Her life revolves around caring for her family and her crops.
Margaret Mary will use the funds she receives from her needlework to provide education for her children; medical support for herself and her family; seeds or fertilizer for her crops; maintenance and repairs to her home; and provide for any orphans for whom she cares as a result of the war, HIV/AIDS or other illnesses.
Margaret Mary meets weekly with her fellow needle workers. The community they have developed through Threads of Blessing encourages each of them and has significantly raised their self-confidence.
