The clothes were presented to Kali-Ku by “Knit for Life”, another Norwegian non-profit charity that started operations in 2013 and ended its activities in 2020.

Ellen Lefdal, a member of Kali-Ku, said all the knitted baby clothes were hand made by people both in Norway and other countries across the world.

She on behalf of the charity thanked ‘Knit for Life” for their generosity, further expressing optimism that more babies in the country will benefit from these clothes.

On behalf of the beneficiaries, Omar Baldeh, In-charge at Sanyang Health Centre described the donation as timely, adding that the items are badly needed at their various centres.
