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

I received the quilts. They are beautiful. I am so humbled
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
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
to you...it is incredibly busy
Dear Sir or Madam,
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
quilt and letter will make you feel better.
