Affinity Health and The 100% Foundation Square Off To Keep The Elderly Warm

Affinity Health and its CSI initiative, The 100% Foundation, are helping warm and comfort vulnerable communities one knitted square at a time.

 

What is Knit-A-Square?

Knit-a-Square is a non-profit organisation that was established to highlight to the plight of millions of disadvantaged South Africans. Knit-a-Square began in October 2008 and provides blankets for people living in extreme poverty. Volunteers come together and sew or squares into blankets.

 

In response to a call-out for blankets to keep the elderly warm, The 100% Foundation received 100 knitted squares that were transformed into beautifully knitted blankets and beanies and distributed to the Foundation’s ECD programmes in the West Rand and an elderly organisation in the East Rand.

 

Knit-A-Square was initiated in response to helping those less fortunate stay warm, no matter the season. The project calls on crafty knitters across South Africa to send 20 x 20cm squares that can ultimately be stitched together for clothing and blankets for those in need.

 

“With summer in full swing, it’s easy to forget the hardships cold weather brings to the elderly. Illnesses such as arthritis, asthma, autoimmune disease, psoriasis and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, are aggravated by the cold,” says Murray Hewlett, CEO of Affinity Health.

 

“By providing blankets and warm clothing, we can make a difference in the lives of others. We will continue to improve the health and wellbeing of the elderly across South Africa,” concludes Hewlett.
