Photos from Uganda:
Earlier this year my cousin, Cindy Roth, and other members of her church group went to Uganda to New Hope to the Kasana Children’s Center to do some mission work there. We sent 150 quilts along with them for the children. Because of scheduling conflicts Cindy’s group wasn’t able to distribute the quilts personally, which is something that happens from time-to-time. (It’s always a disappointment when that happens, because everyone wants to be Santa at least once in their lives!) However Cindy just received some pictures from the delivery that occurred after the missionaries had left.
Here they are!
The smile on this boy”s face says it all, doesn’t it? I know the children who received these and the other quilts we sent to Uganda will cherish them! Great thanks to all the wonderful quilters who made all the beautiful quilts we sent to Uganda.
Quilts on their way to Guatemala:
Loretta Kelldorf, our Regional Coordinator in Tyler, Texas, has been coordinating an initiative for Orphan Outreach in Plano, Texas, to take some quilts to the Downs Syndrome School in Guatemala City, Guatemala. She recently sent me these pictures of some of the beautiful quilts that will be on their way to the children in Guatemala shortly. The quilters include Joanne Hopkins, Donna Della Camera (the winner of our Fat Quarter Challenge this year!), Margaret of Washington, Delleen of Oregon, Karen Vander Stoep, Karen Matheson, Donna Sciandra, Alice McQueen, MJF, Susan Brown, Jennifer DeMeuse and L. Hollingsworth. To know which quilter made which quilt, please hover your cursor over the thumbnails. For a close-up view, click on the thumbnail.
Thank you, all the wonderful ladies who made these beautiful quilts! We’ll post pictures of the children who receive them as soon as we get the pictures from Orphan Outreach.
