My husband recently travelled to a city in Northern Iraq called Sulaimaniya. He was there to present some money to a local orphanage on behalf of his company here in Kuwait. He met with the local Chamber of Commerce and other business people in the community. When he toured the orphanage and visited with the children, he noticed that their beds were tiny and in need of some warm bedding. I have taken on a "quilt ministry" to make 50 quilts for the children of the orphanage. With help, I can get the quilts (I will be personally hand delivering them) to the orphanage by June which is a deadline I have set. If you can help, I sure would appreciate it and I know the children would find joy in this wonderful gift from all of us quilters. I am making quilts the size of a elongated lap quilt. If you can help me with this "ministry", please email me at nowandthenworks@hotmail.com. I will provide a USA address to send the quilts to. From there they will be shipped to me in Kuwait. The children are boys and girls age 5 to 15. Please lend a quilting hand!
