Felting With UNHCR Hand Dyed Wool Roving, Combed Top by dudleyspinner

Memorial Day is traditionally a day to honor veterans of our military.

I would also like to thank those that volunteer, especially my daughter Amelia. She is taking an internship with the United Nations High Commission on Refugees in Washington D.C. This type of service is also a sacrifice and hardship. She has a small stipend as income and must do without many things.

What is the UNHCR? They have programs to help refugees around the world.
I found this article about women who are learning felting, a traditional craft. They will be making items for sale. This to help support themselves and families. Felt-making craft helps young Roma refugee women in Balkans state

You must be very proud of your daughter. To know that she has a giving heart and can give of herself must be wonderful.

Yes we are proud of her. She is organizing a Freedom School summer reading program this summer in Wash. D.C..
