Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Cinthia's story reflects the challenges she has faced in her young life, particularly after the separation of her family. With the family now scattered and Cinthia moving in and out of different homes, her situation has become desperate. The difficult living conditions in the slums of Honduras have taken a toll on her mental well-being, and it is heartbreaking to see her in tears when we speak to her. In such a turbulent environment, finding happiness can be a constant struggle.
One Common Thread has become a source of consistency for Cinthia amidst the uncertainty. While her living situation with her boyfriend may not be ideal, she is now the mother of a 6-month-old son and a two year old son named Christian. Sewing has remained a constant for her, and the support provided by One Common Thread helps alleviate some of the extra expenses she faces.
