This small facility employs six blind workers and a blind manager who produce thousands of pillowcases and sheets for hospitals and hotels.

The Textile Workshop provides meaningful employment to sightless adults through the production of sheets and pillowcases under contracts with hotels and hospitals. 

In a way that only a job can provide, the blind adults in the textile workshop take great pride in producing linen and textile products for sale in the marketplace. The high-quality products they produce rival the products of both domestic and foreign competitors - and customers continue to re-order because of the quality of their products.

Your support can keep the Textile Workshop in business. Your donations will be targeted to buying the rolls of raw materials to be transformed into products, packaging materials for the finished goods, sewing and cutting machine maintenance and replacement, and packaging machine maintenance.

2017 The Need Continues

After decades of slowly improving circumstances for the sightless in Greece, conditions for the blind have taken a drastic downturn as a result of the faltering economy of Greece. If you have ever considered helping to improve the lives of others less fortunate than you, now is the perfect time to act.
