Blan­kets sent north

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Mis­sion With­out Bor­ders would like to say a ‘‘big thank-you’’ to all the women who knit­ted jumpers, hats, scarves, whole blan­kets and thou­sands of peggy-squares to make sin­glebed blan­kets for or­phan­ages in Moldova and Ukraine.

Lo­cal co-or­di­na­tor Jocelyn Cur­rie said they were able to fill one wool bale to add to knit­ting col­lected from all over New Zealand which has been shipped in two 40-foot con­tain­ers to ar­rive in time for the win­ter months.

Mis­sion With­out Bor­ders will be in­volved again next year in knit­ting and col­lect­ing knit­ted blan­kets and gar­ments to send to East­ern Europe.

If you are in­ter­ested to know more about this project, phone Ms Cur­rie on 234 1137.
