Thanks to Barbara Escalante, the labor, delivery and post partum staff of Mercy Gilbert Center in Gilbert, Arizona, and www.leighsblankies.com, Dar a Luz recently received a donation of 35 pounds of baby blankets for impoverished moms. Two more huge suitcases are on the way!
Barbara was moved by an article about conditions in Santa Barbara – where a shortage of blankets necessitated the use of brown paper – to gather donated blankets and bring them to Honduras with her on a recent trip. In the future, Barbara plans on sewing more baby blankets for donation to Honduran moms in need.
Thank you, Barbara, for your thoughtful efforts!
