Make A Difference To A Syrian Child's Life!

The exodus of Syrian refugees accelerated dramatically in recent months, there are more than 1.6 million Syrians hosted in foreign countries. More than half of registered refugees are children and three quarters of registered refugees are living with local host families and communities in both urban and rural areas. If current trends persist, it can be expected that over 3 million Syrians would have left their country by the end of 2013. By the end of the year it is estimated that half of the population of Syria will be in need of aid. This includes an anticipated 3.45 million Syrian refugees and 6.8 million Syrians inside the country, many of whom will be displaced from their homes.
Help us to bring a little comfort to these Syrian children, something as simple as knitting or crocheting a square or two ( or three four or even more) can really make a difference. These squares are sewn together to make blankets for these children. These blankets  provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to the Syrian refugee children who have been made 
homeless by war and will send a message of concern and hope. Your participation is important in sending this message of hope, the thought that someone cares, that this beautiful, handmade blanket was created especially for them. It doesn't really matter what it looks like: even the most basic knitted blanket patterns will yield perfect results – a smile.

I realise the cost of sending items by post especially to Turkey can be costly which is why we are asking for just 3 squares ( of course we'll also accept more). If you could knit or crochet just 3 squares they would fit easily into an envelope and postage shouldn't be too great!
It really will make a difference to a child's life!

We work with reputable, experienced relief agencies to securely transport and distribute our hand-knit and crocheted blankets.
