It is strange to us to think of African children being cold. However, the wind can howl and temperatures can plummet, especially in high altitude regions. Rural African life is lived outdoors so everyone is exposed to the elements. Children with disabilities often spend their time sitting in the open air so they get very cold. Many of you have risen to this challenge and been busy knitting. Our trustees now have lots of beautiful, warm, woolly garments to take with them on their next visit. A couple of church knitting groups in York have clicked together and made lots of gorgeous, cosy items. Thanks to all of you from the many children to whom you have brought much needed warmth.
