Refumade in Ledras Street
There are over 25,000 refugees in Cyprus with scarce resources and very few opportunities to earn an income. We created a Dignity Centre in June 2019 where they can come and get access to opportunities and resources that will help them rebuild their lives.
The sewing cooperative grew from a grass roots desire to repair clothes and express themselves. It soon became clear there was a huge amount of talent and desire to create products that people around the world would like to buy. And Refumade was born. Using donated sewing machines, and material that we buy locally, our 30+ co-operative members are carefully hand-making unique and desirable items. Once they pass our rigorous quality control, we immediately buy everything the members produce at about 80% of the sale price. The products are then shipped to the UK and sold through our online store refumade.org
We need to rent a bigger location, buy more sewing machines and increase the stock of fabrics to expand this cooperative. It will provide essential income for families, instil a sense of purpose and promote independence.
