Australian volunteers knit over 6,000 garments for Mongolian children

Thursday, 14 June 2007
A group of Australian volunteers knitted over 6,000 garments for Mongolian children last year.
Located in Geelong, Australia the group, called the Guardian Angels, meets at Bellarine Village’s Guardian pharmacy to sip tea and knit warm clothing for Mongolian children.Pharmacist Greg Porte said he has supported the program because he is sure the garments will save lives in Mongolia.“We take mild weather for granted in Geelong,” he told the Geelong Advertiser.

“But the cold affects the lives of poorer Mongolian children immensely, leading to a lack of education, lack of nutrition and sickness.

“Every piece of clothing knitted and donated makes a difference in the most direct way possible to under-privileged kids around the world.”

A similar group knits throughout the United States. The U.S. program is called the Dulaan Project, which is headquartered in Flagstaff, Arizona.
