Poole Soroptimists help the Kori Project in Sierra Leone

One of the main beneficiaries of our knitting and crocheting efforts is the Kori development project at Taiama in the Kori district of Sierra Leone. See more at  The project helps everyone in the community.

This is a charity led by S.I. Thames valley, one whose members often comes to Dorset on holiday. 

We have contributed hats, jumpers and blankets for babies born in the clinic. This incentive has encouraged much larger numbers of women to have their babies in the clinic, meaning safer births and enabling the babies to be vaccinated much earlier than before.  We have now begun to knit items for larger babies.
