Quilts for Syrian Refugee Children

While we can’t imagine what it’s like to flee a war-torn country, we know the situation is grievous – loss of home, friends, familiar routines and now facing days of barely surviving. Our prayers and our hearts go out to all of those who have fled Syria.

Quilts Beyond Borders has found a partner to help us get quilts to refugee children. International Relief and Development (www.ird.org), a non-profit, non-government organization, has embraced our desire to help. IRD will accept our quilts and distribute them to children in Za’tari Camp in Jordan.

I hope you will join us in supporting this humanitarian effort. For this effort, we are asking for the following:
1. Completed quilts only that are sized for children’s beds (40-45” wide and 48-60” long).
2. Ship by October 20, 2013
3. Ship to either Tina who is the East/North Regional Coordinator or to Noreen who is the Southeast Coordinator. Links to their emails can be found on our sidebar (“Where to Send Quilts and Tops”).  Send them an email, and they will provide you with their address.

Please contact us at quiltsbeyondborders@gmail.com if you are able to help or if you have questions.  Thank you for rallying to a critical need,
From everyone at QBB
