The Dandenong Uniting Church was bursting with energetic, happy children over the weekend when Save the Children ran a community playspace for the Nasir Sudanese Community. While the kids were happily playing, their parent attended a Child Protection forum organised by the Child Safety Commissioner Victoria, where they learn more about child protection systems and the role of community in supporting each other.
As parents came to pick up their children, they were invited to take a Born to Knit blanket to keep their little ones warm this winter.
Through Save the Children programs, Born to Knit blankets reach many families in need, including new migrants and refugees in Australia. Thanks to all our knitters who have donated blankets that help keep children warm!
