Craft Hope Project 11

Craft Hope has introduced another amazing project. Project 11 - Konbit Sante is all about making safe and necessary birthing kits for newborn babies in Haiti. Here is what the kits include:

1 small bar of soap
1 piece of clean plastic sheeting (3 feet wide by 4 feet long)
1 piece of clean string, 24 inches long
1 packet alcohol wipe
1 set of sterile latex gloves
1 packet (or travel container) Purelle
1 handmade tote bag
Receiving blanket–36 inches square
Small “stuffy” toy

That is all that is needed to save the life of a newborn baby. I can't find the words to describe how humbling, and shocking that is. When we're complaining about having to share a room with someone, these women don't even have a clean blanket to wrap their newborn in. 
I am very excited to be involved with this project, and it's not just me who has joined in! The whole Knit-Wit Group, including Paula at On a Rainy Night , is getting together to make as many kits as we can.  

Here is the link to the Project  - Konbit Sante
