Lutheran World Relief Efforts

Mission Quilts

Imagine the comfort that comes with a hug when someone is in a time of deepest need.  Through a simple combination of fabric and thread, we can reach out to those with some of the greatest needs in the world, not wrapping them in our arms, but wrapping them in the work of our hands through a LWR Quilt.  Most often these quilts are used to shield against the cold and rain, but there versatility also makes them useful as simple tents, floor coverings, or a wrap to hold a baby on his mother’s back.

 Baby Care Kits

Bringing a baby into the world can be a difficult and scary thing for a mother living in poverty.  She worries a bout her baby’s health and well-being when there is a lack of money to buy the things needed for her newborn.  The items included in a Baby Care Kit provides those items–soft blankets to give them warmth and comfort, soap to keep germs away,  a hand towel, T-shirts, gowns, cloth diapers, a hat, and socks.

On Monday, April 3, a few of the quilter’s packed up items for Baby Care Kits and took them to Homestead Care Center for the assembly of the kits.  Several of the residents assisted in the assembly of the kits.The kits and quilts were dedicated on Sunday, April 23, and shipped to Minneapolis for Lutheran World Relief distribution in May.
