Help abused women


Help us raise £25,000 so we can continue to supply yarn, needles, and haberdashery to women so they can knit. This is specifically so we can continue to help those in the most wretched circumstances:

  • Women forced to flee war and civil unrest. They are stuck in makeshift camps, without hope or dignity, often haunted by recurring nightmares.
  • Trafficked women and those who have been raped, who find asylum, but are far from home.
  • Victims of domestic violence, who have had to leave it all behind, and seek shelter in women’s refuges.

The sufferings of these women cannot be overestimated. Alone, poor, ashamed. Often blaming themselves.

Knitting helps their recovery, because it is calming, it makes them feel useful, as they knit for themselves, their children and others. Some even set up small businesses, selling their knitting.

Please support our work so we can continue to help these abused women.
