Quilts in Guatemala, and Some Headed to Ethiopia!

Quilts Beyond Borders often works with other charitable organizations to move quilts to children who need them in other countries. Two of those organizations are Orphan Outreach in Plano, Texas and Cherokee Gives Back in Raleigh, NC. The pictures below show some of that work which is taking place.

The first two pictures are of quilts which we recently delivered to Cherokee, which will be going to Ethiopia with Cherokee volunteers. They will be distributed to children at the Kichene Study Center, which Linda, Brenda, and I visited earlier this year.  For more information on our trip to Kichene, see this link:

The next 3 pictures show a couple of the quilts that went to Guatemala with Orphan Outreach.  As you can see, the children love to have their pictures taken!  We hope we’ll receive more pictures to share with you.

  

Thanks to Cherokee and Orphan Outreach for helping us put smiles on so many children’s faces!

Regards,

Carla

    Those children with their beautiful smiles makes it all worthwhile. Thank you to everyone who has pieced, quilted, bound and donated fabric and their time to QBB.

    So true! And thanks to you, Donna! Both for reminding me to thank everyone who makes this possible, AND for making all the beautiful quilts you’ve made for Quilts Beyond Borders!
