We collaborated with Hope for Pakistani Refugees (HOPE) which is one of the community based organisation registered with UNHCR, established and run by refugees from Pakistan to make this handmade pouch. This handmade pouch showcased elements of their Pakistani culture from the design to fabric selection using newly acquired skills kindly taught by United Artisans' volunteers.
As of end of August 2018, there are some 161,140 refugees and asylum-seekers registered with UNHCR in Malaysia. Although the majority of the refugees are from Myanmar, there are some 5,810 Pakistani refugees living in Malaysia.
HOPE provides classes for refugee children and vocational training for adults. One of their aims is for members of their community to learn valuable sewing skills which in turn enables them to be more self-sustaining.
This handmade pouch is available in three colours - Olive Green, Deep Purple and Enchanting Maroon and retails at RM 49.90.
While stocks last, for minimum nett purchase of RM 200, you will receive this handmade pouch worth RM 49.90 in randomly selected colour.
