It may seem strange that the Raven Trust sends quantities of blankets and woollen clothes to such a hot country as Malawi. However, many of the children we work with live in the mountainous region, high above sea level where it can get very cold, especially at night.
Because of the high rate of death among infants, babies are sometimes not particularly well looked after until they are considered “viable”. Not only do these clothes and blankets keep them warm, but also, the fact that the baby has been given a special gift can increase its chance of good care.
Donation of knitted and crocheted goods for children are always needed.
