Hope 2 Others help babies who are dying of hypothermia during their first 10 days of life. We are making newborn kits in an effort to help prevent this unnecessary infant death. We need donations of baby items (see the list of needed baby items below) and people to come and help pack on November 13th. We need volunteers.
Come and help!
Baby Items Needed:
- (Newborn to size 9-months)
- Newborn hats
- Clothe diapers & plastic pants/diaper covers
- Small bar of gentle soap
- Infant teething toy
- 2 ½ gallon zip-lock bags
- Donations can also be hand-made, gently used and clean.
This is an ongoing project so keep collecting throughout the year.
Many babies are dying of hypothermia (low temperature) during the first ten days of life in Tanzania, East Africa and many other developing countries. This is such a concern that the Tanzanian government has mandated that all birthing centers, hospitals and clinics must give every mother a hat, blanket and booties when they are discharged. Many Tanzanian families and most birthing centers are unable to provide these supplies for their newborns. Hope2Others has implemented a program called Hats 4 Hope to help these babies and mothers in Tanzania and other developing countries who are in need and desperate for their babies lives.
Even though African days are warm, nights are damp and chilly, and newborns become fatally cold. The first few weeks of life are the most vulnerable time for these newborns. In an effort to help these infants, Hope 2 Others has created the HATS 4 HOPE PROJECT to collect donated newborn hats, blankets, booties, onsies/t-shirts, sleepers, cloth diapers/plastic pants, small bar of gentle soap, infant teething toy, and 2 ½ gallon zip -lock bags.
These items will be put into a drawstring pack and given to the mothers. We’ve taken several of these kits to a birthing center in Tanzania, Mercy In Action Birthing Center in the Philippines and to midwives in Guatemala.
We thank you and the supporting businesses for your commitment to bringing Hope, Healing & Health to Tanzania and other nations. YOU are a blessing to these babies and mothers.
You are making a difference in the lives of others through your compassionate and generous giving. May God bless you and your families with love, joy, peace, good health & prosperity. Monetary tax-deductible donations to Hope 2 Others are also accepted for the purchase of cord ties, bulb syringes, string bags and shipping.
Tax-deductible Donations are Welcome:
