Give Children A Choice ventured out to the remote areas in Xieng Khouang Province where many Hmong children live. It is Hmong New Years but many people are cold and hungry like many other evenings during the winter. All year long we collect gently used clothing to give out to the children in the remote villages, our Global Heartfelt Hatters meet weekly during the school year to knit and crochet hats and scarves (and more) for the children in the mountainous areas and this week we are providing as many children as we have items for something warm to wear. The number of children seem to always outnumber the items we have to give away. We will be traveling to these areas again in a few weeks, if you are in Laos and can donate any gently used clothing please contact us, if you are elsewhere it is most cost effective to make a donation and we will do the shopping across the border in Thailand. Make a donation on our Home Page by clicking the Donate button. Together we can share the warmth.
Give Children A Choice visits the Mother and Child hospital to hand out hats and toys made by the Global Heartfelt Hatters in Vientiane.
