This discussion will have several distributions represented.
The first is the most recent from Athele. The ones following are pictures that Ronda has collected in small bits throughout the year.
COVID has changed the way KAS distributes blankets, but, the important news is that they are getting to the children that need them.
Happy viewing and we hope you spy one of your squares or a blanket.
So glad you spied your creation.
Thanks for sharing these photos, Amy. I think I’ve seen about five of the bears, so far. I love that they have arrived to give joy to the children!
More photos from The Village Safe Haven in Sandton.

an outstanding collection of blankets!
So lovely to see these children are now safe in their Home and lovely to see them all wrapped up and cuddling their toys.
This distribution was done by Athele's good friend and KAS supporter Amanda Knight.
Here are her words:
Knit a Square fabulous blankets, toys, beanies and hand warmers were a wonderful addition to the Christmas giving that Karin Sommerville arranges with Sydney Morabe . 21 children who live in Diepsloot township, 5 many of whom are orphans, were the delighted recipients of Knit a Square blankets and others were given toys and beanies. Such beautifully behaved children who are given a meal once a day by the Diepsloot Youth community. Thank you Athelé Oosterbroek for organizing via Knit a Square. These children live in shacks, the warmth of these blankets will be so welcome for them. The queue for lunch was at least 150 children, masked up and sanitized on their arrival at the community hall.
Wonderful to think of them all being far warmer than they have been.
