We provide sponsored training for unemployed adults with special needs and place them with our employment partners within the F&B, hospitality and retail sectors. We also hire some of our graduates at our food court and book retail stores”.

Known for hand-sewing masks and quilting, Mrs Lee contributed a hand-made quilt she called, ‘Dignity Blooms’.

The colours of the quilt – shades of blue reflect honesty and trustworthiness, emerald greens for harmony, freshness and renewal, and fuchsias to inspire confidence and assurance for the days ahead.

In a video shared by Project Dignity, Mrs Lee can be seen talking about the quilt she made. She added that it comprised of two pieces; a top and a back.

She added: “I just had fun playing around with the stitches and filling the various petals with different stitches”.

“And then I played with coloured threads to sort of give it some interest”, she said.

“What I also tried to do was give it a glow from the centre with some of the fairly bright colours. And, its just meant to be a cheerful, fun piece, with a bit of texture and interest on the bloom”, Mrs Lee explained.

In his own Facebook post, Mr Lee asked his followers to “See if you can find the butterfly”, a creature Mrs Lee stitched into the quilt.

See if you can find the butterfly.
