Help us Knit Squares For Syrian refugees!


 Help us Knit Squares For Syrian refugees!


A total of 1,043 Syrians made their way to Turkey in a single day, marking the highest figure in recent times. Currently, the Turkish government has set up nine locations including eight tented camps and a “container city” in Kilis, some 150 kilometers (95 miles) east of the Hatay camps, to deal with the influx.


Help us Knit Squares For Syrian refugees especially the children.

Please consider making a square or two with your odds and ends. Any spare wool you have can be knitted into eight inch squares and then we'll stitch them all together into a blanket. No waste and someone gets a warm and colourful, cover for their bed!




We work with reputable, experienced relief agencies to securely transport and distribute our hand-knit and crocheted blankets for this progect we are working with IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation.
