The Greater Milwaukee Synod has mission partnerships which include support for the Salvadoran Lutheran Church and groups the church supports. Through our benevolent giving, First Lutheran supports the Los Heroes Sewing Collective, which works with local women to teach sewing skills they can use to create personal care kits distributed through the church. The kits are distributed by care workers to young women in outlying areas. For their work, the women are paid $5 per day. The stipend helps them support themselves and their families with basic needs and helps keep families together in El Salvador. Our money supports the workshop with equipment and fabric.
Ways we can continue to support these entrepreneurial women:
- Pray for them and their families and community
- Share our leftovers from sewing quilts and home goods with them
- Support them with our faithful offering
