Winter Blankets for Abandoned Babies (Open Heart)
Location Home

We are currently knitting winter blankets for Romanian orphans. Summer months reach higher than 44 degrees centigrade. Winter often drops lower than -22 degrees centigrade. The abandoned children stay in hospitals as long as 5 to 7 months. They are well cared for in orphanages after this age, but they have nothing in the hospitals. Heating systems are minimal and often don't work. 

Please help us to make their winter more comfortable.We welcome anyone that wants to help. The more volunteers we have, the more hospitals we can help. We are happy to link up with both individuals and groups/organisations who want to help out. 

 Every blanket made will increase these babies comfort over a very cold winter. Our most common sizes are around 43cm by 30cm, 39cm by 27cm. We also have smaller 33cm by 27cm and accept pram blankets 25cm by 22cm for poor families.
