Friday Facts ~Making a Difference

Sri Lanka 1997

Years ago in the 90’s I went out for a time to Sri Lanka to help train machinists and resource training qualifications with various colleges departments out there.  This was to set up standards like  NVQ’s which stands for National Vocational Qualification, for the firm I worked for  which had  3 textiles factories out there.  I have never forgotten the wonderful people and their kindness, or the places of extreme poverty I witnessed first hand. or at the other end of the scale the lavish hospitality given to our party by the Sri Lankan High Commissioner of the time… or being introduced to Prime Minister Sirimavo Bandaranike  

Later I was saddened to learn also that some of those who worked in the factory I was involved with lost their lives in the Tsunami of 2004  Which over 40,000 people lost their lives.. and the places I was once stood were  deluged under the wave that swept ashore.           

While many companies exploit those who manufacture garments by cheap wages and terrible conditions  and we all have in our memories the awful building collapse in Bangladesh.  I can place my hand on heart to say the conditions within the Factory Site of our group was in fact better equipped than the factory in the UK and was a new modern building on an industrial site built for purpose.. The trend in the 90’s was to manufacture overseas and the resulting years now has seen the once thriving textile industry of the Midlands here in the UK become almost none existent as it profit margins could not be maintained paying good wages in the UK..  And while ever the demand for cheaper clothing continues then there will be those unscrupulous enough to cut yet another corner to further a larger share of profit.

So when you next buy your next item of clothing, just take a second or two to look inside the label and see where it was made.. And spare a thought for the long arduous hours in often poor conditions some of these clothes were made..

I also want to direct you to another Blogging friend I have had for several years her Blog is called  Sweetie’s Space, Nothing Else Matters  Sweetie, is from Belgium and she and her Husband do remarkable work going out there to help orphanages and schools in many different ways.. This lady is really making a difference to lives out there. And she is doing it through her own steam.. I hope you click the links and see what she has been up to this visit..

What can We do to make a difference?

It may only be a small thing such a smile, or giving up your seat on public transport for someone in more need . Or it may be you are already making a Difference..

It may be you just make someone laugh.. Laughter is such a healer and bringing joy and company to someone’s lonely day, it makes such a difference to those who sit within their four walls or within residential homes..  

You May rescue animals, or like doing charity work.. or just making that much needed donation.

Are you making a Difference? Please share your stories how you made a difference small or large..

Love and Blessings

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
