Meet Myrna

  • Just had a baby in 2011 with no stable income.

Myrna is a mother who may be facing financial insecurity as well as difficulty with her health. She had a baby a couple years ago, but since then has moved away and no one is quite sure where she went. Although it may not be in Myrna’s case, in these scenarios many women have gone to hide and enter into the horrific world of prostitution.

  • How she got started in this livelihood project:

In October 2011, Work of Your Hand requested good quality bags made out of upcycled coffee bags from a non-profit organization committed to sharing and living out the Gospel among Filipino women caught in prostitution. One of the trainees at this organization knew that Myrna knew how to sew and recommended her. Unfortunately, since then Myrna has moved away and so can no longer be contacted.
