Following up on last year‘s extremely successful charity project Quilts Over Incubators donated to the new-born unit of Masarykova Hospital in Usti nad Labem, we are bringing you a new project.
Every year, there are various cushion covers being made for the children patients in the oncology department in Usti. However, there are adult patients too, often suffering from curable deceases, which however raise fear and concerns. They do have access to medication and professional care, but also need hope and mental support. It is very helpful to them knowing that someone cares and thinks about them. The support can be shown by donating a small cushion for the hospital stay.
A small cushion that will belong to them only and will stay with them throughout the cure process.
If you are interested in supporting this cause, please make a quilted cushion cover in any technique and 50x50 cm size. We are only asking for covers, the fillings will be bought jointly by Prague Patchwork Meeting and the hospital. We aim to make the logistics as easy as possible for you and make it convenient to hand the covers over. You can send the covers separately or together with a quilt you have registered for PPM to Prague Patchwork Meeting, Přístavní 14, 170 00 Praha 7, Czech Republic by 25th March. Alternatively, you can bring it to PPM in person and hand it over at the Info stand.
Big thanks ahead to all of you who will support this charitable cause and help cancer patients.
