PomKnits is a World Jewish Relief initiative to provide blankets to some of the most vulnerable people in the former Soviet Union. It’s an easy and fun way to get involved in the work of WJR and to help provide warmth to people in Eastern Europe where winter temperatures can reach as low as minus 30 degrees.
We ask our support to knit squares, 40 of which are then sewn together to become part of a beautiful patchwork blanket.
PomKnits has proved to be extremely popular and, to date, we have sent 730 Blankets made up of 29,200 squares to the people who need them the most.
But we are always looking for more knitters and would love for anyone to begin knitting squares on our behalf. You can knit in any wool, any color, and any design – we will be grateful for anything that will keep people warm!
Do join us and become part of a worthwhile and enjoyable project by helping in this satisfying, hands-on way. For more information or you have any questions please contact Clare on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 8736 1250.
