Cov­er­ing up

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION/NEWS -

More than 22 large blan­kets, 23 cot blan­kets, 47 jumpers, 89 hats and scarves were knit­ted this year by lo­cal women for Mis­sion With­out Bor­ders.

The woolly wares have been sent to chil­dren in or­phan­ages in Ukraine, Ro­ma­nia and Moldova as part of ‘‘Op­er­a­tion Cover Up’’.

‘‘We were able to send a full wool bale of knit­ted items plus a car­ton of slip­pers and toys through to Auck­land which, to­gether with many other bales from all over the North Is­land, were sent on a con­tainer ship to the or­phan­ages of Eastern Europe,’’ said Mis­sion With­out Bor­ders area co-or­di­na­tor Jo­ce­lyn Cur­rie.

She wanted to of­fer a big thank you to all the ladies who de­voted their time and skills to this year’s ship­ment.

Mis­sion With­out Bor­ders is a Chris­tian or­gan­i­sa­tion that has been help­ing the un­der­priv­i­leged in Eastern Europe for more than 10 years.

If you have do­na­tions of wool and/or would like to be in­volved in the knit­ting cause, contact Jo­ce­lyn Cur­rie on 234 1137.
