Nabawieh, a highly prized employee at Melia Center, is working tirelessly to improve her skills in embroidery through our work. Financially, she has little to no support from her family. Poverty is ever-present in her life. As a result of her father’s marriage to his second wife, Nabawieh now cares for her mother, younger brothers and sisters, two of whom are divorced and have children of their own. Nabawieh has a natural eye for good art; she is perfect in matching colors and creating designs from old cloths. She has been working with us for the last 20 years, which makes her a vital member of our community.
