Every year, the participants of the different solidarity knitting workshops gather together in a huge meeting, along with self-summoned women and school students who learn there their first stitches.
During that morning, over 200 women combine their love for knitting and their solidarity to make clothes we deliver to the most vulnerable people throughout the country.
Between 2013 and 2017, almost 6,000 outerwear items were donated to 54 national organizations: blankets, scarves, gloves and children’s hats.
“Knitting is an individual act, which can be transformed into a community meeting when its purpose is to help the other. It’s moving to see the affection and dedication with which each of the garments are made to be donated, and the emotion in the eyes of those who receive those items made with so much love,” said Patricia Kahane of Fundación Tzedaká. “There are usually several generations of the same family in the same place, and all donate their skills to help others. From Fundación Tzedaká, we invite everyone who can join to dedicate a few hours to this activity that is so fashionable nowadays and that can help so many people”.
