Comfort for a scared child

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.

Trauma teddies that will bring comfort for refugee children IMG-20171027-WA0001 IMG-20171115-WA0000

Thank you to every one of our volunteers who gave their time and a piece of their heart by knitting teddies for the refugeeĀ 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.
