Love for Syria currently supports a knitting group of 60 Syrian women living in Jordan, each earning a respectable living wage allowing them to provide for their families. "When we think about the injustices of the world the only way we can wrap our heads around why some people were born into a life of safety and comfort and others into a life defined by war and hardship is that those of us in these positions of privilege have been called to act. ...By purchasing a piece of knitwear, you're not just supporting refugees, you're rewriting someone's life story.” - Laurie Hart, Founder and Director.
