Sewing Machines for Dom Community
November 2017

Through the years the Dom Research Center has provided sewing machines to individuals in shantytowns and other disadvantaged Dom communities. The women who received the machines are now able to provide for their families. Some make alterations to clothing. Others make and sell curtains and table clothes, and other home accessories.

Building on the success of these individual efforts, this summer the DRC began raising funds for a community sewing center in Gaza. The funds will purchase three machines ($5,620) and a generator ($2,000) to power them. The generator is a must. Electricity in this area is limited to two hours a day. The machines will be available to the women of the community, as well as being used to teach other women sewing skills that will enable them to help their families.

The goal is to purchase the machines in December. Currently, contributors have given $6,088. Consider assisting this community by giving to support this development effort.

Support the Work of the DRC

Working in conjunction with Dom community leaders, the Dom Research Center is engaged in life sustaining efforts such as emergency food distributions and efforts to secure adequate, on-going medical care for Dom communities and individuals. But, relief efforts are not the only type of work that is done. Support of programs carried out by the Domari Society Community Center in East Jerusalem, as well as a variety of small business starts in Dom communities in Gaza and the West Bank, along with educational and vocational training events make up a well rounded approach to community development, all under the direction of Dom leaders.

Please consider making a tax deductible contribution to the Dom Research Center and become a part of this vital work.
