A year ago, we met a lovely group of people from Vic. They stayed with us for a short time, and while here they visited Bellekria. Celeste was one of them. Not only did she bless us with her very caring heart and fun/friendly attitude but she also grasped the needs of women in regards to the cloth pads we were making.
On returning to Australia she spoke with a few womens groups and put together a power point. She encouraged women to sponser one complete cloth pad set for one Timorese woman every month. Since she returned to Australia she has forwarded donations which have allowed us to distribute pads to many women in rural/remote areas of Timor.
.Recently she had a vision to hold an event in her local Community Centre. A number of other energetic and generous people have pulled together to support her dream and she is holding an evening in Hastings VIC.
It has been astonishing for me! A fundraising event solely for the production and distribution of cloth pads – the reason why Bellekria first began. It is so exciting for me that others would see the pressing need and put so much of themselves into assiting!
Obrigada Barak (thankyou very much) Celeste, and all the others that have helped arrange this event, and everyone who attends/supports the foundational dream of Belekria.
