Faiza gave a presentation last night at Asheville Friends Meeting.


We had about 30-35 people show up to hear about what has happened in Iraq and the projects Faiza is working on. One project is a water treatment project, which is funded for Veterans for Peace. This was started in the 1990’s and has recently been revived, since clean and safe drinking water is a problem in many areas of Iraq.

The other project Faiza is working on is the ‘sewing machine project’ which the local Vets for Peace and Peace & Earth Committee of Asheville Friends Meeting have taken up as a cause. This project will get sewing machines and materials to Iraqi widows, so that they can make clothes for their children and families, and then make clothing to sell on a market. The sewing machines are able to be powered by foot treadle.

You can talk to Susan or other members of P&E about supporting this project.
