A brand new sewing machine for your patch:


Sewing machines, provided by donations made to Mission International have found their way to help refugee returnees in Burundi.   Families will now have the opportunity to break out of poverty as their income generating projects make a start.

The beautiful Palm Olive trees in the background may hide the picture of great need that is felt by so many in Burundi at present.   Many people have left now redundant and closing refugee camps in Tanzania and DR Congo to return home to start a new life.   For many it means the daily grind of trying to survive will continue indefinately but with a greater risk in their new surroundings.

Nitunga Francois and Theo Mbazumutima  two of the Rema Ministries personnel deliver a sewing machine to this lady, her opportunities for the future have now changed and have come into focus making it possible for her to use her tailoring skills to provide for hrself and her children.
