The dresses got there but first it took people to donate material, people to sew them, people to hook them up with people in the field. It’s amazing how this gets done! I am so in awe of all of you!!!
I hope this message finds you doing well. I just returned from Batey Cuchilla. This is our poorest Batey in the DR and we decided to distribute the dresses through Carina, one of the members of our Club Agua hygiene youth group.
This morning Yesenia and I drove out to Carina’s house and set up shop in her front yard. Earlier in the week she made a list of 44 little girls who were then invited to receive a dress today. It was a great event and everyone was very thankful for the wonderful generosity of the ladies in the United States. I’ve attached a few photos. Please tell all the ladies involved Thank You from all of us at WWR and also the girls of Batey Cuchilla!

Hi Rachel…. Here are some forwarded email and pictures I thought you would like to read and see…Aren’t these little girls and dresses just darling? Wynnell and I started showing the “Dorcas” sistersin St. Simmons Island, Georgia how to make the dresses and the Dorcas Group really get the dressesgoing.. They are such a good group of retired ladies that do so much for their community and for peoplearound the world and their sewing skills are remarkable… Our Quilt Group up here in York Countyhas given them yards and yards of fabric and lace, etc. and they certainly make good use of it… Theyare continually sewing all the time…Hope you enjoy the pictures and emails as much as I have… Gail, Rock Hill, S.C.
I wanted to share photographs of the distribution of the dresses by our in-country team leader, Steffani Fields. I think the pictures are worth a thousand words, and as you know, generosity like yours truly makes a difference in the lives of these sweet-natured children. I feel very comfortable speaking for them and saying that they will LOVE wearing the dresses and will wear them often! Thank you so much for your continued support of World Water Relief.
Hope this finds things going well for the ministry! Just to let you know the woman that you see standing in the middle of the children went to Uganda for 30 days and is now on her way home, however her ministry there was intense for many groups of people. Probably the most was at the Mubende Orphanage, which is south of Kampala and has about 150 children within its compound. This group is in dire need of just about everything that you can imagine, including clothes, fresh water and toiletries. Yolanda Paniagua, from here in Southern California has been there three times now and is making a huge impact as she continues to raise money for their care.
Needless to say, the blessings were great when she was able to take the last three boxes of clothes that I had to the group on this trip. Unfortunately however, there were no shorts or t-shirts for the boys, which had all been given in prevous trips. In the future, we must remember to take plenty for the boys as well. The girls however were blessed and thilled about the gift.
Thanks again for your dynamic coverage of God’s love through the gift of clothing. As I said, there is so much that needs to be done to improve their quality of life but just this simple gesture brings smiles to their faces and let’s them know that we are thinking about them 1/2 way around the globe! Please continue this great ministry!
All our love,
I wanted to let you know that the village in Isiolo, Kenya received the package of clothing and they were so delighted! Their leader, Chili, said they were so happy, she wished she had a camera to send us the pictures of the children’s faces!
A huge thank you to you and all of the people that make this wonderful cause successful!!!!
Here are a few photos from Venezuela. The shorts and dresses were an enormous hit. The children just loved them. Thank you and your friends for all of your help. The children just loved the dresses and shorts.
