In July, Alice Latha reached out to Knit a Square to provide warmth to the children in Free State.  We had a marvelous distribution there in the Monontsha Village with songs and a hike  up the hill.  

Read all about it Here.

Then we had a Celebration Distribution with Mabel dressed in her beautiful colors, in August.  LINK

In September, Mabel returned to the area to start up a KAS satellite group for sewing blankets together to warm children in the surrounding area.  Please remember this is over 300 km away from our KAS Barn.

We are now going to report all the marvelous things that are happening with this group here in one page.  Please follow along on this amazing journey...

One week after Mabel instructed the adults how to sew blankets, school children were introduced to the project.  Here is Alice's report:

We are glad one of the schools in Free State is assisting us to join squares for free. The Principal take this as an education to kids so that they can learn to work hard . The school has lot of vulnerable kids, disabled and orphans who attend classes there. Others don't even have school shoes nor uniform. At least they will sew the blankets for their own benefit. When they are done with blankets we will donate to them. Thanks to Knit-a-Square team, May God bless your hard work.

Alice helped with a distribution through a church on September 22.  Here are some very touching photos and a message from Alice and the Reverend.

This is the message from the Rev. of the Church, we donated blankets to their physically challenged children yesterday

Dear Knit-a-square

Thank you so much. I'm so touched to see children cry when they receive your donations. The way we have poor society other kids sleep without any blankets. As the church we do offering and we cook for such kids on weekends. They know that they get food at church on Saturdays and Sundays. We really want to appreciate the help you did for our community. A giving hand will be blessed. May God bless you even more. Attach here photos we took as church during your offering.

Kind Regards

From Church Council

This last photo makes a powerful impact.  Alice writes:

I'm so touched by this photo. May God bless every knitters who's part of KAS around the world. Tears of Joy

This child is crying because he received a blanket from you, Knit-a-Square. He is from the poorest family. Please note that you touched other kid's life in a special way. May God bless.

Once again, Alice was on the go, distributing warmth to children in small towns, Koppies, in Free State, on October 5.

She posts: Thank you so much for touching Free State kid's lives in different way. May God bless.

Thank you for this heart-warming and emotive account.   The pictures are fabulous as they really show the effort and care which goes into every stage of our giving process, and why we do it.    It's made my day.... I'm off to knit some more.....

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
