Knitted Knockers

Calling all knitters/crocheters that want to make a difference in Haiti! We have sent hundreds of knitted knockers for use as diagnostic tools in Haiti but they need thousands more! Trained nurses utilizing knitted knockers with beads sewn in them are teaching the women of Haiti self breast exam. They have asked for thousands more of dark brown size Bs. If you can help register as a knitter/crocheter at knittedknockers.org and start knitting or crocheting those dark brown knockers! ... See MoreSee Less

I reregistered in hopes of helping now that I’m home full time again πŸ’•

Do the Knockers for Haiti need to be stuffed before mailing to Knitted Knockers?

Do you want them in cotton or acrylic?

On it!

paintbox skin cotton in coffee bean .. making more πŸ™‚

Is there a cutoff date by which you'll need these, or will this be a long-term kind of project?

A friend and I have each committed to knitting knockers for this project. We usually carry our finished products to a local store that supplies 2 hospitals in the Cincinnati area. We love the idea that our finished knockers will travel to Haiti.

Received all my goodies today!! I’m “knockin’ on Haiti’s door!” What a great cause to be a part of!

Where do you sign up to knit?? I would love to help out.

Knitted Knockers

Tanzania update: A lovely young woman started knitted knockers in Tanzania & I just got this update from her awesome mom... "Before she left home for med school, I made her a promise that I would continue the Knitted Knockers work which she started here through her school and I am happy to say that I have kept my promise. We have a very nice group of ladies, about 16 of us so far (and growing fast), and we get together once a week, every Thursday afternoon to stuff and label all the prostheses that we have knitted or crocheted.

Once a month we also make a hospital visit to the Ocean Road Cancer Institute (OCRI) which is part of the Muhimbili National Hospital in Dar es Salaam. OCRI is the only specialised facility for cancer treatment in Tanzania, and one of the oldest institutions in Tanzania having been founded in 1985 by the German colonial government. Today it is under the Tanzanian Ministry of Health offering numerous patient services.

We go to the hospital once a month, usually during the support clinic day, and we give out the prostheses directly to the women who have had mastectomies. These ladies travel from all over the country for diagnosis, surgery and treatment and many come from the very poor rural areas. In addition to the prostheses we also give out bras as many of the women don’t even have any, and lately we have also been giving them soap, bananas, biscuits which they themselves had asked for. We have so far given out over 500 prostheses.

We are humbled and gratified because they are so well received. None can afford reconstructive surgery and very few can afford the silicone prostheses which actually I am not even sure are available locally.

I really wish you were able to come and visit us and see for yourself the happiness on their faces when they receive the prostheses. I am attaching one photo of our group and I will also try in a separate email to send you more photos of our hospital visits as well as a video clip of a couple of the ladies dancing with joy upon receiving them. However, please don’t post this video on facebook out of respect for their privacy.

We have been very fortunate in that so far many people have come forward with donations of money and also cotton yarn. The polifiler we can buy locally. At the moment we have enough money and yarn to last until at least the end of the year.

We have also now made contact with 2 hospitals one in the town of Arusha and one in Mwanza and we plan to meet them in the next couple of months to work out the logistics of how to these prostheses to them too. We are careful to make sure that they are given out free of charge so that no one can sell them which is something we were anxious about in the beginning. If you can remember I’d written to you to ask how we could go about making contact with the women who would need the prostheses. It is through these hospitals that we are now able to actually meet the ladies and give the prostheses to each and every one of them.

This is our news Barb. I thought you would be happy to hear all this. All the ladies in our group are volunteers and have generously offered their time and funds as well.

I am sending you a lot of love Barb, and I would really like to thank you so much for giving my daughter and all the ladies in our group this opportunity to serve our community and for making us feel so fortunate to be able to do this"
