At this time of extreme winter in Vrindavan, it’s a blessing for the underprivileged children to receive a blanket knitted with love and compassion.
This initiative was called Knitathon 2018-2019 in which the world’s largest blanket of 3949 square meters was knitted with the help of a huge team of over 400 volunteers from 26 different nationalities living in UAE. The blanket was comprised of over 3200 smaller blankets with a hand-written heart placed on each to symbolize the warmth of love. These blankets were then distributed to poor children worldwide, proving that small efforts can make a massive impact. More than 300 blankets were donated and distributed to the girls at Sandipani Muni School, girls who have a single parent or whose parents earning is almost next to nothing. The gifts were received with lots of appreciation from families who cannot afford any winter clothes.
We are grateful to Dr. Nishi and Kishori Ji (Supporter of FFLV), Kanika Kapur (Project Leader) and all the participants for their wonderful efforts
