From The Big Issue In The North, 14-20/4/08: “Oxfam wants people to knit nine inch squares for a giant baby blanket, with each square representing a mother who did not survive pregnancy or childbirth.

The blanket will be handed to the UK government before world leaders meet to discuss the Millennium Development Goals to halve world poverty by 2015.” The find out more about the Oxfam campaign, click here.
