We heard that a sewer in our barangay Sicat, who is a sister in law of our domestic worker, lost her sewing machine and had become out of job for a year. Her sawing machine was rental and the owner took it back from her.
We sought for a good working second hand sawing machine and bought one for her. Since it was not informed to her, she was surprised when the sawing machine was given to her. She could not believe that she could have it with no payment attached. We explained that it is better to give a fishing rod than giving fish.
Since the sawing machine is from Japan, a voltage transformer was also included in the donation.
We temporarily set it up in her small table and tested the machine.
