You can help us in a number of ways, whether you wish to fundraise, raise awareness or donate - whether you are an individual, school, company, church or rotary club, your support is appreciated and really will make Life Worth Living for women and girls in Africa.
Rehabilitation is an important part of the recovery process for our fistula patients. To help women rebuild their lives after surgery, we offer a wide range of services and opportunities. At one end of the spectrum, we teach basic literacy and numeracy skills, handicrafts and help to build confidence, and at the other end we offer enterprise training and loan/saving/insurance facilities.
As part of our handicrafts training, some of our patients stitch together knitted squares to make blankets. This activity gives them something to do to fill their time as they recover and they also get the gift of a warm blanket to take home with them when they leave the hospital.
PLEASE NOTE: We have been so overwhelmed with your fantastic donations that we no longer require any 'fish and chip' jumpers, or knitted teddies, dolls, or balls. Please keep on knitting the 6" or 8" squares and baby jackets/cardigans from Prem Baby size up to 3 months size. THANK YOU! We are limited with storage space and currently are unable to accept other items. If you have other items to donate, please consider www.knitforpeace.org.uk.
Please send your knitted donations to Freedom from Fistula, BIG KNIT CHALLENGE, Robertson House, 1 Whitefriars Crescent, Perth, PH2 0PA including a note of your name/organisation name.
