Women knit blankets for Syrian people, at “La Cafeteria” cafe in Villaverde del Río in on October 15, 2015. At home alone or hudled together in groups in cafes, women of all ages across Spain have furiously knitted blankets to send to war-torn Syria before cold weather starts in response to an online appeal for help. Every night for the past week, a team of some 20 women and girls have met in a café in the heart of Villaverde del Rio, a town of white-washed houses near Seville, to finish their blankets and send them to a small NGO of Madrid, Syrian People Support Association.

This picture is from this article at Huffington Post about the Spanish people making blankets for the Syrian refugees.    In case you speak Spanish (I think Google can translate the page for you maybe) check out their page at aaps.es.  They’re also collecting camping gear and other supplies, they have a wish list.  There is also a donate button at the top of the page!

From their site:

All Help is needed.  Your help is needed.
