... spreading their 'wings of smiles'!
I had the good fortune of several years ago visiting Caron our South Africa coordinator. As you can imagine Caron faces many challenges such as availability and cost of fabric, long travel distances and unfortunately issues of theft at the hospitals. Through it all Caron and her wonderful volunteers have persevered and continue to bring joy to the children.
Caron had the good fortune of meeting quilters from Sedgefield earlier this year and they spent the morning making pillowcases. “We had an amazing time and then they wanted to know if they could doing anything else to help. I kept all the offcuts and always visualized quilts for the babies that we meet in the hospitals. The rest needs no explaining. I dropped off what I had and this is what I received back. I am in awe of the beautiful end product”, said Caron.
I too am in awe of these extraordinary quilts and continue to be in awe of the wonderful angels in South Africa.
