helping newborn babies survive
Last month a small group of us crocheted and knitted infant size caps for new born babies in Liberia. We filled a box with about 150 caps, put in several large bottles of pain releiver pills and mailed it off. The postage was about $50.00.
The reason we did this is that I saw a new born baby while I was there last July. It had no cap and since Western medicine has decided that babies need to keep in their body heat, even in hot climate, I decided to crochet some caps for them.
I encourage everybody to make some caps. I'll bet there are new born babies born at home and kids on the street, who would appreciate a warm hat. I'm wearing one right now, inside our heated house--of ocurse it is snowing out.
