Mothers And Babies Need Help
We have some mothers and babies with urgent needs. There are 3 sets of triplets and 2 sets of twins who are in desperate need. One tiny young mama carries all three babies at one. Two on her back on one in front!!! Baby carriers and double/triple strollers would be such a blessing!
We have one little boy who is so malnourished he has the body of a 20 month old. A baby wheelchair for this child would be such a great help. Actually he has a cleft palate and struggles to eat so we are looking for a bottle that has a special fit to feed him without it all heading for his nose? That would be a HUGE blessing to his mum. We are working hard to find a doctor who can do his surgery as soon as possible. Such a precious mama who is trying to do her best for her son, his name is Simba.
Quite a few mums are HIV pos so we were very happy to give them the wonderful porridge that I know will help them. The most consistent need is formula and baby bottles for feeding. We have so many children in Zimbabwe that need help but we are limited obviously with resources. The main objective for us is to keep babies and children out of institutions and in family based care. Family preservation .Orphan prevention. Certainly many of our babies would be institutionalised if we did not give them the formula they need.
If you have the ability to help with any of the items listed above, please bring them to the container packing day, next Tuesday, October 8th, 7am-8pm.
Thank you, thank you!
