More Quilts to Syria

Another delivery of your beautiful messages of love has been sent to the Syrian refugees.  I just learned that the war in Syria has been going on for 6 years. The words suicide and prostitution are showing up more frequently in the articles about the camps. The people’s despair, their hopelessness reaches new heights daily.   Below are the quilts that were sent in the latest delivery.
