Our Refugee knitting project has been running for almost 6 years. Please help us keep it going through 2020 and 2021. Currently, the project consists mainly of Syrian Refugees who are in refugee housing making children’s sweaters, scarves, gloves and hats that are then distributed to Syrian refugee families in the camps, although there are some items made to be sold (about 20%). 100% of the proceeds from selling the knitted items goes directly back into the project. To date, over 150 refugee families have participated in the project. Over 20,000 sweaters and hats have been made and distributed to needy refugee children and over $385,000 has been given to aid Syrian refugee women, making a huge impact on their lives and families!
