Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Joana's beautiful quilt showcases her skill and attention to detail in creating a repetitive patch work pattern. The mix of fabrics, along with the elegant blues and pastels, adds a touch of class to the design, resulting in a clean and visually appealing piece.
Joana's determination and work ethic are commendable, especially considering the challenges she faces as a mother with a disabled husband. Despite these difficulties, Joana remains focused on her craft and strives to perfect her stitching. Through her hard work and the support of donations to One Common Thread, Joana has achieved a significant milestone: purchasing her first refrigerator.
The ability to buy a refrigerator may seem like a small step for some, but it represents a significant improvement in Joana's quality of life. It enhances her family's ability to store food and preserves, ensuring they have access to fresh and nutritious meals. This accomplishment is a testament to Joana's resilience and the positive impact of One Common Thread support.
By purchasing Joana's quilt, you not only acquire a beautiful and meticulously crafted piece but also contribute directly to Joana's journey towards a better life for herself, her child, and her disabled husband. Your support empowers Joana to continue her hard work, pursue her dreams, and create a more stable and comfortable living environment for her family.
