Project Patricia Mission Details

Project Patricia sews cloth washable reusable maxi pads for women and girls predominately in African countries.  Each woman and girl receives a kit containing three pads and a waterproof storage bag.  Project Patricia works with individual missionaries and missions groups to carry and distribute the kits.   Project Patricia also partners with Hands on Africa to distribute Kits.


Our mission is to bring glory and honor to our Lord Jesus Christ through service to women in Africa by meeting a physical need as an avenue to demonstrate Christ love and share His gospel with them.  With each kit a bookmark is sent, in an African dialect or in English, setting forth the Gospel in a clear and concise manner.


Our ladies at Stilwell UMW work with six other churches, four of them being Methodist Churches, to help support this mission by donating material, cutting and sewing the pads and kits.


The mission was started in 2009, and the missionaries have taken a grand total of 37,632 kits, to 27 countries.  In 2015, a total of 10,000 kits were sent out.  With the Ebola outbreak, Hands on Africa could not get into many areas, so they could not take as many kit, but they can get in now, so the need will be picking up for 2016.


The ladies at our church, worked very hard this year, by cutting and sewing a total of 2,943 pads and 3,000 water proof bags. A big thanks to all of you who gave generously of your time.


Stilwell’s Project Patricia meets on Saturdays, every other month, from 9-12PM, for work days. 

For info on Stilwell’s work days, call Barb Kelley at 913-897-8158.


But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

UMW Christmas Tea & Mission Event


Many thanks to all who attended our Shoe Cutting Party on June 8th. Many hands made this a fun and meaningful event including those who donated supplies, donated shoe sponsorships, provided amazing refreshments, helped set up and clean up, and cut out shoes pieces!  


We completed the denim and plastic components for 26 pairs of shoes. Since we have more supplies and sponsorships available, stay tuned for another party later this summer. Our goal is to complete and sponsor 50 pairs of shoes. Each $10 sponsorship pays for buying additional supplies needed to complete the shoes, employing Ugandan tailors and shoemakers to make the shoes, shipping the shoes to Uganda, and hosting weekly clinics.


Each week Sole Hope staff washes the feet of 150-250 children. Their feet are inspected, jiggers removed, the shoes you helped cut are given, and one on one education is provided. We currently have the funding for 43 pairs of shoes. It was fun to Party with a Purpose!
