Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
This beautifully refreshing quilt was made by Nohemy. Nohemy, pronounced No-Em-ee, is a remarkable 34-year-old woman and a loving mother to her three beautiful children, Astrid, Alex and Amy. Nohemy takes great pride in maintaining a meticulously clean and well-kept home. Every dish is in place, and every bed is made, reflecting her dedication and attention to detail.
When One Common Thread first encountered Nohemy, she was facing desperate circumstances. Her bathroom and kitchen lacked concrete floors, leaving her living space less than ideal. Through the support of donations, One Common Thread was able to provide the concrete needed to cover the dirt floors. The addition of the concrete floor has made a significant difference in Nohemy's well-being, providing her with a more comfortable and hygienic living environment.
Nohemy's gratitude extends not only to the concrete floor but also to the opportunity to work and contribute to her family's income. Prior to this, she had been receiving a mere $4 a week from her common-law "husband" for food and household expenses. The work she receives from One Common Thread has been a valuable supplement to her income. Despite the challenges she faces, Nohemy maintains a positive outlook and sees the silver lining in every situation. Her delightful personality and optimistic attitude have endeared her to those who know her.
