Congregation members from Catholic churches in Cedar Rapids and Vinton are helping to piece together 950 school outfits for children in Haiti.
Dozens of people volunteers gathered at St. Ludmila in Cedar Rapids to hand-stitch hundreds of uniforms. The handiwork is not over, though; for the next eight months volunteers will still fashion hundreds of little uniforms for Haitian kids.
Bina Sitaram, a 40-year old former senior garment technician in the fashion industry, has created a social enterprise that affords young students lessons in healthy living by holding gardening, cooking and arts and crafts sessions.
