With origami, Unitarian youth group supports Ebola fight in Africa
Kim Pannathorn, left, and Thane McGrath, members of the Unitarian Universalist youth group, display some of the new origami cranes the group is creating. The group sent its first batch of 1,000 cranes to Sierra Leone in Africa to support the country in its fight against Ebola.
Origami means paper folding in Japanese. Crane makers start with a paper about 3 inches square.
Cranes were presented in Freetown on Friday as part of a community-service day organized by the U.S. Embassy in Sierra Leone.
