Building Hope Caring Compassion

 

"Very beautiful pictures.  Looks like your project has traveled far. i've been researching about colonialism in Africa for a few hours... the quilts remind me that American goods in Africa can be good."
-an UNCA student

Summer 2005 - Quilts are sent to a clinic in Umtata that takes care of the poorest of the poor and The House of Resurrection Haven, an orphanage in the Eastern Cape Region - Port Elizabeth,
