Bay Is Very Happy
Bay and his partner Tuan at Reaching Out are expert weavers. They have been without looms for a year, as the one that they had been using broke down, beyond repair.
Thanks to a most generous donation from our Canadian friends they have a new loom with another on the way from Japan.
Today Quyen and I talked about how the beautiful fabric which they produce will be used and we think that the material will be very suitable for making handbags which are a top seller in the shop.
Bay and Tuan both suffer with Down Syndrome, but with the training provided by the shop, they are able to make a living wage.
We are so grateful for the support of our home team and know that the gifts from Canada will continue to help these two lovely people prosper.
