The project is meant to help displaced mothers who have had to escape their homes due to war. We intended buying sewing machines and other sewing accessories for handicrafts.
In the meantime, some of these women have been working in some independent sewing workshops for other people receiving next to nothing for their work. Their expertise is being exploited given their vulnerability and desperation. In all of this, they often have to provide the basic sewing materials themselves.  
Given that what has been donated so far cannot really buy a good machine,  we would prefer to use it to procure sewing materials and other accessories that they can use wherever they are able to work. This should help them save a little bit more money to be able to  get decent working tools later, hoping that we are able to raise some more money to help  them realise this project
