If You Have Sewing Skills and Would Like To Help

Do you have basic sewing skills? Do you want a tangible way to help mothers in Haiti? Make reusable sanitary pads! These pads are provided to new mothers after they give birth. Why reusable? Haiti has a large trash problem. Reusable pads help to reduce trash - particularly biological trash. Our reusable pad program was developed by a local girl working on her Girl Scout Gold Award. She has created a YouTube video that discusses the program and process and instructions and template are in the pdf files below. If you have any questions regarding this project please contact pads4stellamarina@gmail.com. Thank you for your support and sewing skills!

Please email meg@stellamarina.org or melinda@stellamarina.org to pick up finished pads or you may leave at the church office clearly marked for "Stella Marina".

The two pdf files to the right provide patterns made out of cereal boxes to make the pads. Click on the pdf images to see the patterns.
