After a lengthy journey by container ship to Lebanon and then getting stuck in customs for 6 weeks these 105 quilts have made it to the refugee children in Lebanon. People remain homeless there after the explosion in Beirut in August 2020. There are also over 1 million Syrian refugees in Lebanon since the war began in Syria 11 years ago.
Thank you to the many quilters who made these beautiful quilts to comfort children in great need across the world. You can click on each picture to see it larger and to read who made each quilt.
