We did a shout out for teeny tiny hats, way back in March 2012 and thought you’d appreciated an update. Judith, one of our midwives in Pakistan has sent us a few pictures of the baby hats which she recently took with her to Quetta. Here’s what she had to say:
Dear Everyone especially those in the MSF. UK office
Some photos to show you the hats in use and how very appreciative we are of them.
The weather here in Quetta has changed dramatically freezing cold and dry. We here cannot thank the ladies of the Pennies per hour of pleasure enough for their dedication in passing these hats to MSF for use within the projects
When I counted the hats on arrival here at Quetta there were three hundred and fifty hats and we have divided them so both projects benefit from them. The project at the Quetta children Hospital which is MSF-OCA based and the Kuchlak project.
Just to add we have now combined these two projects as one.
As much as we need medical care, drugs and people to manage within the field it is the little things like the hats that go a long way in assisting with the care
Many many thanks from all those at the Kuchlak-Quetta project
We can not accept anymore hats for the time being (we just don’t have the space) but if you’d love to knit for others, check out the UK Hand Knitting Association’s website – there’s a great long list of charity knitting projects for you to get your needles clicking for! Knitting for Charity
