Newsletter October 2020

Dear friends,

It’s time to write to you again. As always, we do with great joy and gratitude.

It was a very different spring and summer for us at work. Just as we know it was for many of you. But, in all this, we have experienced fantastic support from many of you who sent in a gift that made it possible for us to pay the salaries for our team.

Catarina has been in Sweden for a long time since the borders between the countries around Romania, have been closed and the rules to travel into the country have made it impossible. Instead, Catarina has worked for Sunflower back home in Sweden by taking orders and selling. In addition to that she works as a nurse and makes a nice contribution there.

We have had the pleasure of receiving donations from several of you, that we have used to sew sheets, pillow cushions and other articles requested, which we then passed on to the Ministry in Dumbrava. This is a work and a mission that continues and that constantly needs help. Today there are about 420 residents in Dumbrava. Elderly and homeless people who get to live their last days in life in a nice home and peaceful environment. We can continue to give them support through your help. We would be grateful if you could continue sending a gift for work we do for Dumbrava. In this way, you provide support to Sunflower Design and to Dumbrava.

We have also received orders from Romania. Many come to have their clothes changed or repaired. All this provides an extra income. The schools in Romania started up in the beginning of September. The government requested all younger students to wear facemasks. Also a cover to keep their changing clothes when they come to school. Sunflower was there to offer making facemasks and the cover for clothes. These were made in bright and happy colours for the children, with their names on using our embroidery machine. It is amazing to see the support we have received from Romania during this time. We are so thankful for that, and to see Sunflower Design reaching out in Romania.

For a week we had a major cleaning in our workrooms  in preparation for laying the  new floor in our workshop as well as repainting several rooms. Our gift shop was renewed by allowing us to buy some new shelves and hanging up new curtains.  Now we are  waiting for the help to have the new floor done. It is important to have a nice and pleasant workplace to offer our team to work in.

We can now offer you payment for products or donations by PayPal. It makes it easier  for our customers to order and pay. Don´t hesitate to contact us for any kind of orders. Time goes fast Christmas will be coming soon, so be sure to order gifts in time for your family, relatives and friends.
