Masks for Double Happiness
PeopleStories has been serving the children of Cambodia since 2017 and our work won’t be successful without the support from our corporate partners and donors. Lloyd’s Asia has been backing PeopleStories since 2018 when we were introduced to their previous CEO, Angela. Since then, we have been hosting Treats for Good charity events at their Singapore office to raise fund to help further the education of children in rural Cambodia.
Talking about the workshop experience, Wen Ya shared, “We really enjoyed it! It was definitely interesting to do something different from our day-to-day work, but more importantly it felt very rewarding to help the community in Cambodia with sewing these masks. I don’t think many of us had sewn anything previously and so we enjoyed learning a new skill. Jacquelene (our volunteer mask making trainer) and Victoria (our Founder) were very patient in teaching and guiding us through the process of making these masks which helped us in completing them.”
The Lloyd’s Asia team are always keen to give back to the community where possible and committed to supporting charitable causes. Participating in the ‘Mask for Good’ workshop and doing a charitable activity together was very meaningful to them. They felt it was gratifying to be able to help the children in Cambodia with handmade masks from them!
Wen Ya further reflected on Lloyd’s journey with PeopleStories, “We have been working with PeopleStories for quite some time now doing Treats For Good and we can see all the good and real work that PeopleStories has done. PeopleStories’ mission is to transform lives in rural Cambodia through education and that is also something that we believe will enable rural communities to break out of poverty.”
After months of working from home, many people are feeling a bit lack of human connection or connectedness. This workshop not only bring people closer but also offers some new skills plus a chance to give to the less fortunate. Victoria shared, “I personally didn’t know how to sew, but Jacquelene taught me so well and now I am wearing my own hand-sewn masks!!!”
