Each year Lord of Life supports the work of LWR by sewing quilts and making kits to be sent around the globe. You can join us by purchasing items for the kits or working with the quilting team. Watch the bulletin boards, newsletter and The Weekly to find specific quilting days or items we are currently collecting.
When you make and send a Quilt, you are not only comforting someone you have never met, but providing an object that is useful in ways you probably never imagined. In addition to being a cozy, clean new bed cover, it can be:
a baby carrier, tied around a mother’s back;
a market display, spread on the ground and piled with vegetables;
a sack for transporting those goods to market;
a shawl; and most importantly
a constant reminder that someone, far away, cares a lot.
Why school supplies? To the children who receive School Kits, these supplies mean the difference between getting an education or not. Public school is usually free, but in the places where LWR works, even a few required supplies, like pens and paper, may be more than many families can afford.
And when parents can only afford to send one of their children to school, girls rarely get priority…yet the education level of mothers has the biggest impact on development.
Baby Care Kits
Details on how to build a Baby Care Kit
A Baby Care Kit from LWR is like a promise. It says to that baby, Your needs will not be neglected by this world. You matter to us. When you send Baby Care Kits, you provide encouragement by welcoming these little ones into an international community that cares.
