Wool-Aid Supports Schoolchildren in India

Wool-Aid is pleased to support 100 or so schoolchildren ages 5 through 15 who live in a residential school in Ladakh, in one of the most beautiful and remote areas of northern India. The children come from the six villages of Lingshed, Gongma, Skumpata, Youlchung, Neyraks, and Dibling.

We are currently providing hats, socks, and sweaters, and also blankets for the younger children (ages 5 through 9) (approximately 40″ x 60″). All colors of clothing are appropriate for the schoolchildren.

Wool-Aid has so far sent 19 boxes containing 498 items for the schoolchildren at the residential school:

Hats: 107
Sweaters: 135
Socks: 205
Child-size blankets: 51

We will send additional boxes of clothing and blankets in ongoing support of the children there, to help keep them warm in the 30-below temperatures that are common in Ladakh in wintertime.
