The Kids We Help

Wool-Aid has helped warm children around the world—from North America to Asia. Warm woolen clothing and blankets handcrafted by Wool-Aid volunteers have been sent to children in northern Canada, Syria, Greece, Lebanon, Jordan, Tibet, India, Nepal, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, and Afghanistan.

What do these places have in common?

Simply put, all of these places are extremely cold, and the people who live there have extraordinary needs and very limited resources. In many of these countries, the temperatures are often -40° in the winter—or even colder! Winters there are very harsh, and the populations often suffer from a lack of food, shelter, medical care, and clothing. And it is the children who suffer the most.





India's Himalayas

Children are our focus, and we work together to provide them with knitted and crocheted wool clothing that can keep them warm, even in the most severe living conditions. We also send knitted, crocheted, and woven blankets to warm the children.

We can't do everything, but we can do this.

We know that our handcrafted items will have a long lifespan in these communities. A wool sweater, for example, will not only keep one child warm for a winter season, but over a period of many years, it will keep several children warm.
