Altrusa quilt project, 2008

Ōamaru Altrusa Club members show off the quilts they made for a hostel for children in Kenya – one example of the many international projects supported by women's service clubs. An appeal to other New Zealand Altrusa clubs at the 2008 conference resulted in other donations to the hostel.
