Incredible grassroot collaboration for the benefit of Afghan babies

This sweater project has inspired people from around the world to knit! We have three groups that meet weekly in Geneva and include women ( and few men) who are working in WHO or other UN organizations, are friends of WHO staff, are former WHO staff or live in the same area (Grand-Saconnex) where WHO is located. Each knitter spends hours first to choose the yarn and the colors, then to knit and finally to stitch the sweater together. And each does it with love and patience, wishing from the bottom of the heart that the babies will have a better start in life thanks to the sweaters ( and hats, sock and blankets).Most os the yarn has been received as donations from private persons in and around Geneva who read a newspaper article about the project.
