Moose Factory Project

Hi I am from the charity Keeping Kids Warm in London, Ontario Canada We are a group of women who meet once a month and knit and crochet for the kids who live on the streets in london. We also provide knitted baby hats for the children who are born on the ambulances all over Ontario.. It is such a joy and pleasure to do this.. The other project we have since adopted is a group from Moose Factory, Ontario. It is in Northern Ontario and to some it is a forgotten part of our province. The people there livein the poorest conditions imaginable. Bad water and poor housing. Some people here would just rather turn their backs then realize the poverty of this area, We as a group have decided to help them as much as we can. We have already sent 3 boxes of things to them to try and help. We plan on continuing to do this for as long as possible. Maybe the more eyes we open the more we can help make the right people step in and help.. We plan on sending items to them every 6 weeks or so.. It is very expensive to send stuff but we will do our best.. Kids of any size shape or colour should not have to live in poverty... We all can help somehow... Thank You Donna
