Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

They did this to make a “counter-terrorism measure” to burn Kurdish villages; False flag operations by the Turkish government against Kurds to kill more Kurds. The PKK is not afraid to work up the past - quite the contrary; together with other Kurdish parties, organizations and associations, they demand the establishment of a truth commission (crimes of the Turkish state and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) during the ongoing conflict since 1984). This was, however, repeatedly rejected by the Turkish Parliament. Why is that? Because Turkey has a sordid past and they have to hide more than the PKK - (Mass grave finds in Turkey)
