Dear fellow Hanoverians:
Mercy Sews, a ministry of the Holy Mothers Collaborative in Hanover, is
seeking new members to sew masks for the Navajo Nation, the largest Indian
reservation in the United States, that now has the highest per capita rate
of Covid-19 in the country, higher even than New York.
Mercy Sews was originally formed in 2016 to sew dresses and ship tee shirts
for girls and boys to the Central African Republic, one of the poorest
countries on earth. So far, the ministry has sent more than 3,000 dresses
and 3,700 tee shirts to Africa.
In the face of the pandemic, however, the ministry temporarily shifted its
focus to help those on the front lines fighting the virus locally. Mercy
Sews provided more than 2,000 masks to hospitals and health care facilities
such as Brockton Hospital, the South Shore Visiting Nurses Association, and
the Brockton VA Hospital, as well as other institutions including local
nursing homes, hospices, food banks, and the Suffolk County Women’s
Although Mercy Sews is a Catholic ministry, they welcome people of all
faiths who would like to join them in helping the Navajo Nation and others
in need around the world by sewing for mercy. Contact Clare Noonan at
MercySews@comcast.net, or visit us at www.MercySews.org for more
