Susan Solomon, dental hygienist, and Dr. Jim Bevans, a periodontist in Hendersonville, presented this quilt during a July, 2008 Medical / Dental Mission to Honduras.  They were part of a group organized by Matt Tinchur, M.D. of Hendersonville, TN.

 




      Ghana    Slave Survivor

Dearest Judith,

I hope all is well! I am not sure if you remember me from Berkeley; I am the Co-Founder of STOP the Traffick and founder of the Survivor's Quilt Project! I am now working for Free the Slaves as a Zimmerman Fellow and wanted to share some photos with you from Ghana. One of my first assignments with FTS was to travel to Ghana to assess our partner organization, APPLE. We went to their shelter, and I wanted to share a couple of photos of their blankets. These children LOVE their beds and have you to thank! We also did the Survivor's Quilt project with them and the children had such a blast. I wanted to thank you personally for the wonderful work you're doing. It's very inspirational! Enjoy the photos!!
Best wishes,
Aashika

Judith:

I received the quilts.  They are beautiful.  I am so humbled by what you are doing.  As you may have heard it is the peak of fighting here...and it is intense.  I am working with some great NGOs in my off time...they are trying to identify...a family in the greatest need, to which I will give those blankets.  I'm sorry it takes so long to get back to you...it is incredibly busy here!

THANK YOU!

Mike

Dear Sir or Madam,

 

When you see my quilt I hope you feel peace. When I was drawing this quilt, I felt peace the whole time. When you read this I hope you feel joy and comfort. I know that sometimes things can get hard. Hopefully this quilt and letter will make you feel better.

-from someone who cares.

Hi Judy,


The teacher, Lucy Stewart, at East Fremantle Language Development Center did a lovely job.  I should get it into the Australian Post this week (along with a photo of most of the class and teachers). When you and your organization decide to whom it will be sent, can you let me know, so that I can inform the school?

 

Blessings,

Bonnie
