Church group in US creates special quilts that teach blind children Braille
September 30, 2017
A church group in Virginia in the United States is creating special quilts for blind children.
The group was approached by a local disability rights group to make tactile quilts for blind children so they can learn Braille.
Group members say that in the most cases, the children are born blind or vision impaired due to premature birth, shaken baby syndrome and drugs.
Since the group started the project, more than 20 quilts have been made for the state to hand out.
The group also makes quilts for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.
They say its their way of showing that someone cares.
