Mission Quilts

So Much More Than a Blanket

“There is, indeed, a transforming moment when a Quilt passes from our hands into another's and they embrace it.” – Kirk Betts, Former Chairman of the LWR Board of Directors, upon distributing LWR Quilts in Niger

When you make and send a Quilt, you are not only comforting someone you have never met, but providing an object that is useful in ways you probably never imagined. In addition to being a cozy, clean new bed cover, it can be:

  • A baby carrier, tied around a mother’s back;
  • a market display, spread on the ground and piled with vegetables;
  • a sack for transporting those goods to market;
  • a sunshade;
  • a shawl; and most importantly
  • a constant reminder that someone, far away, cares a lot.
