I meant to ask:

Similar schemes have been set up in other countries around the world, including Spain, Ukraine and the USA. Groups on social media help crafters to learn how to make the comforters. There are around 19,000 crafters and supporters in the Polish group, and 10,000 in the US group.

Would you like "Poland" adding to >>Similar schemes have been set up in other countries around the world, including Spain, Ukraine and the USA.<< as >>There are around 19,000 crafters and supporters in the Polish group<< which is the first mention of "the Polish group" and I wondered why there was no mention of Poland (unless you mean the Polish population of the UK - in which case, forget I mentioned it)smiley - laugh

Thanks GB smiley - hug

I've subscribed smiley - ok

That is a good question about the list of countries - I think I was trying to avoid repetition, as I didn't mention Poland or the UK in the first list, but then it does look strange that the USA features in both lists...

How about "Similar schemes have been set up in other countries around the world, from Spain to the USA via Ukraine and Japan" ?

Then we need to update the other sentence: "There are around 19,000 crafters and supporters in the Polish group, and 10,000 in the US group." --> "For example, in January 2020, O&#347;miorniczki dla wcze&#347;niaków in Poland contained around 19,000 crafters and supporters, and Octopus for a Preemie US contained 11,000 people."

Is that better?
