Victoria's Quilts, Canada. Neepawa Chapter
Neepawa chapter of Victoria's Quilts provides handmade quilts to all residents of Manitoba who have been diagnosed with cancer. So many people are affected by cancer and need the support and comfort that a quilt can provide. If strangers are looking out for you when you get that diagnosis, then you feel the love and caring from the larger community.
Neepawa has the only chapter of VQC in MB and it is a huge task to provide quilts to all those who have been diagnosed with cancer. Each quilt costs between $80 and $100 and we now deliver about 200 quilts per year, so $15,000 would help us to create about 150 quilts.
