Remember the mom I interviewed a while back – Elizabeth Muema, who said that “Crocheting for Cancer is her Ministry”? In the interview, Elizabeth, the founder of Crochet Kenya (a community-based organization) said she was inspired to donate crocheted chemo caps to cancer patients in hospital –both adults and children.
The caps, she said, makes patients feel warm and loved as they go through chemotherapy.
In addition, Elizabeth said that the hats also act as accessories to female patients whose hair is falling or has already fallen off, and who feel that they need some cover up. Crochet Kenya also sells some of their products, which helps them get funds to continue positively impacting the lives of cancer patients, who need all the love and care they can get. You can read the full story here.
Well, it’s good to learn that Crotchet Kenya continues to grow. After being an online store since its inception, it has recently opened a physical shop in Juanco, Ngong town. The shop is at Lube Sill Centre, shop B4. You can contact Ressie Restiuta on 0725 742 666 for more information.
If you are looking for a baby shower gift, or if you’re planning on going to see a new mom, you can place an order from Crochet Kenya for their lovely items such as booties, sweaters, scarfs, blankies and even boshori :-).
I salute Elizabeth for her work and to all the other women and men who give of themselves to noble causes. May God continue to bless their work. By the way did you know there is a crochet diaper? Neither did I.
