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.
I thought so, it was yours. You must be thrilled to see it shared by siblings, I'm .
How wonderful that the children get the benefit of physical skills (sewing) and also get a blanket! There are so many needy. My heart goes out to each one of them.
Just catching up with this discussion....and WOW!!
Thank you so much for sharing all this information and sooo many wonderful photos, Amy. xo
What a blessing Alice and Mabel are, in identifying areas of need and getting the blankets to those who need them most.
