Description : Like the majority of the residents of Mosul, the manager of this workshop has been deeply affected by the conflict. Refusing to give up, she initiated a sewing project with simple machines. Thereafter, and with the support of the ICRC, she was able to develop her project, buy more equipments and hire eight employees. She also teaches free sewing classes.
