Clothing the naked is not a work described in the strategic plan or mission of SewHope. However, I can think of one thing that we did that specifically addressed this Work of Mercy.
Some of the teenage girls of Orfe's group went to Purushila when we had a
medical mission there. They spread out a tarp and sold some used clothing
for low prices. Some of the families took advantage of the bargains.
Sometimes we think that the very poor walk around naked. Here is Guatemala, this is not the case. I rarely see even a baby without a full set of clothing.
A few more pictures.
