Coronavirus Crisis Care—Blankets
As winter comes, tens of thousands of people in many of the world’s poorer countries are ill prepared. They have been seriously impacted by government-mandated lockdowns in response to COVID-19. Even though these lockdowns have eased in many places, the economic damage continues. They not only lack money for food, but they also cannot afford to buy blankets and warm clothes as winter approaches. Many will suffer from cold, and some undoubtedly will freeze to death. Our contacts are requesting thousands of blankets to help these people prepare for the coming winter.
The delivered price of a good, warm blanket bought directly from the factory is about $25. A blanket might even make the difference between staying alive or freezing to death this winter. In response to the requests we have received, it would be wonderful if we could supply blankets to 100,000 needy people!
