Puppets for Refugee Kids
One of the hardest things about working with refugee children is knowing how much they've seen and been through at such a young age. Initiating play can be really hard even without a language barrier.
It's amazing to see shy and serious kids begin to open up and goof off when a hand puppet comes into play. And play is so essential.
Not only do these handmade puppets offer some joy to the kids, they also offer a little bit of income, dignity and purpose for the refugee women who make them.

These guys have been working in Iraq for 25 years. Glad I could help them do their job.

I can't afford much, but I like knowing I can make a real difference for someone.
I always wanted our church to help out but never knew how. So glad to learn about ShopForRefugees!
