The Proof is in the Picture

Indian children with the dolls

Sometimes I wonder if it is possible to find the right words to describe the feeling of total joy.   And then, as I look at the pictures of the Children in Tamil Nadu receiving the gift of an Indian dolly from Edmund, I realise that words are unnecessary.  These wonderful pictures taken recently in India say it all.  

These dollies are made by Liz Gittens, a retired teacher, who lives in the idyllic Worcestershire countryside and who feels privileged to be in good health and living in such beautiful surroundings. Liz is a keen supporter of HHI and a fine seamstress. She has sewn, by hand, dollies for sick and disabled children in India and Zambia.   Each dolly is an individual boy or girl with appropriate dress and hair. They are a delight and, as you can see, are really appreciated by the children. 

Thank you Liz.
