Wool-Aid partners with F.I.R.E. (Flagstaff International Relief Effort) and the Dulaan Project to send warm woolen clothing and blankets to the children of Mongolia. In addition to sending many items to the Dulaan Project throughout the year, Wool-Aid sent a large shipment of more than 400 items in November. These items are now being distributed to children in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city, to help keep children warm as harsh winter sets in.
Winters in Ulaanbaatar are extreme: It is the coldest capital in the world! It rarely gets above freezing during the day, and temperatures are often -40° at night.
