In resource-poor communities, new moms often go without many of the essentials they need to keep their baby clean, safe and healthy.
Supplies for newborns are needed in many of our international and domestic programs. While basic materials come from hospital surplus, the bulk of the items we donate to new moms comes from our generous community. Onesies, washcloths, clothes and more are needed for our Welcome Baby Kits, maternal home, and clinic donations.

Through this note, I would like to express how appreciative and happy I was to receive a mother-baby bag filled with various items when I came to give birth at your facility. The bag made me so happy because it contained items I wasn’t able to afford for my baby at the time. Thank you for the medical care I received, the free gift and a special thanks to the director of the unit for ensuring that this gift arrived in our hands. On my behalf, as well as on behalf of all the mothers that were at the hospital giving birth and received your bags, I send you a kiss and a hug to thank you with all my heart.”
