Hello, this is Nuri Park from Peace Winds Korea.
It has been one month since we installed 10 washing machines in Tanisma village. Today, I would like to share a review of the project with our valued donors.
Reduced frustration among the people
First and foremost, it has been reported that the residents of the village, who were once filled with frustration, have experienced a noticeable change in their demeanor, marked by "gentle expressions and confidence." Those who used to easily get annoyed by the unbearable itchiness and foul odors have found themselves less stressed. Additionally, with the reduction in time spent on handwashing, the mothers, in particular, have experienced a decrease in stress and expressed gratitude for the valuable moments of rest.
Empowered mothers preparing for the future
Secondly, there has been a significant transformation among two women who are working for the laundry facilities in the community. A woman, a single mother raising four children, shared that she was now able to provide food and necessary school supplies for her growing children. Consequently, her children feel proud of their mother's efforts. Moreover, the other, who is three months pregnant, acknowledged the daunting reality she faced but expressed relief in being able to save a small amount of money for her child's future, which provided her with a sense of stability. Both of these mothers, representing the entire village, expressed gratitude for the support they received, even in meeting their basic needs that were often lacking in the past.
With the help of donors, the people of Tanishuma are getting out of the memory of the earthquake faster.
We appriciate our valued donors.
As always, PeaceWins Korea remains committed to making ongoing efforts in providing necessary support where it is needed.
