Refugee children have seen things and experienced the type of fear that will give any parent nightmares.
Giving them something as simple as a knitted doll can provide a world of comfort and security. A soft anchor in a terrifying world.
Thank you to every one of our volunteers who gave their time and a piece of their heart by knitting teddies for the refugee children in Iraq.
If you would like to follow there example, here is a step by step guide to knit your own teddies.
And if you’re not a knitter, you can still bring comfort to the children by donating toward the cost of distributing the teddies.
