Getting ready for the call for bandages — DOVE Bandage Brigade
It has been a while since I have posted about the D.O.V.E. Bandage Brigade. I was at their website this week knowing that a call for bandages would be soon. That call has been posted and bandages need to be in Ohio by November 15, 2015 in order to be included in the shipment this year.
Don’t know about the DOVE bandages? Information about the main DOVE (or Development of Vietnam Endeavors) organization can be found if you click here. One part of DOVE is the Bandage Brigade, leprosy in Vietnam continues and it is my understanding the bandages that are hand created by knit or crochet are more substantial and breathe better than commercially available bandages.
Often, while I watch tv I will knit bandages. Football season is particularly good for bandage knitting since I can knit and watch at the same time. The photo at the top of this post shows 5 of the 6 bandages I plan to have on the way by the end of the month. I still need to secure the ends, wash and roll. Info about how to make and where to send can be found by clicking this link — Bandage Brigade.
