A few weeks ago we shared that the @liftinghandsinternational Women's Center Dolls Of Hope sewing corner in Greece made 75 bears and dolls in the Dolls of Hope sewing corner. These 75 dolls and bears were then delivered to Yazidi children living in refugee camps in Iraq by LHI team members Molly and Kyle.
Knowing she was heading back to Iraq and wanting to get more dolls and bears in to the hands of more of the Yazidi children in Iraq, Molly contacted me with an idea of how we could quickly get her more dolls and bears. We are incredibly grateful for @advo_k8 being willing to take a big bag filled with 100 dolls and bears with her to Germany to deliver to another LHI volunteer, Larissa who is meeting Molly in Iraq.
The bag of 100 was filled with 20 dolls and 80 bears made by Nada Mair, Jordan North 4th Ward Relief Society and Young Women, Kennewick East Stake Relief Society (Ashley Stratton), Cedar Hills 8th Ward Relief Society (@nursekorton), Cherry Hill 6th Ward Young Women, Janet Wright, Melinda Hicken, San Diego 7th Ward, Ammon 3rd Ward Young Women, and the Waldorf Maryland YSA Ward (Amy Henderson). #
Again these bears and dolls will be going to Yazidi children in Iraq, most of whom are orphans as a result of the Yazidi Genocide. We are incredibly honored to be able to help the children in such a meaningful way with these dolls and bears. Sincerest thank you to Molly, Kate, Larissa and all those who made these 100 items that will bring much hope and joy and smiles to the Yazidi children in Iraq💕💕
