Whenever you see a patient in a bed, on a gurney or being carried in someone’s arms, you will see them with a colorful quilt. These are given to each patient as a gift from Rotaplast. The quilts serve several functions: they are a means to cheer them up; give them a bit of security; and most importantly keep them warm.They will also be a lasting memory of a day in their lives that they were made better in many ways by a group of strangers.
This quilt program is not unique to the Cumana mission but is done for all the Rotaplast missions around the world. The quilts are made by volunteers via the “Wrap A Smile” organization: Wrap-A-Smile. Over 400 quilts have been given away so far in 2015.
