Recently on Sewing With Nancy, I interviewed Karen Klemp and Jane Krogstad from Hope 2 Others. Karen and her husband Rick founded Hope 2 Othersa non-profit organization with a focus on birthing, new-born resuscitation projects, and survival kits to prevent hypothermia for moms and their babies in Eastern Africa. Watch our Nancy’s Corner interview at NancyZieman.com.

Bringing Hope 2 Others: Blankets Needed | Hat and Blanket Drive | Nancy's Corner | Sewing With Nancy | Nancy ZiemanKaren told me that many babies were dying of hypothermia. When they asked a birthing center, and others, how they could help, they were told that each birthing center, hospital, and clinic delivering babies has a need for blankets, hats, and booties. These basic supplies are needed for mothers to take home and keep their babies warm.
