Lullaby Africa helps traumatised and disadvantaged mothers, fathers and carers in Kenya and Uganda to form a healthy, natural attachment with their babies and toddlers.
Depression, war, rape and aggression have stifled the natural bonds between the generations. Lullaby Africa uses qualified play specialists who work with parents and children to regrow those bonds. To help with this work we were asked to knit teddy bears which are used in role play and singing games with the parents and their children.
Thanks to Soroptimist cousin Lesley Hirst, Soroptimist friend Carol Warrington and to Jenny Schafer and her band of Hope Farm Methodist Church Knit and Natter group we have this bunch of fine fellows to send to Lullaby Africa.
Thanks also to Liz Batten and SI Winchester who are going to deliver the teddies to Lullaby Africa’s headquarters in Winchester for us.
