Project HEALTHY BABY
Location: Epirus Region, Greece
Challenge: Can you imagine the fear that you have nothing for your newborn and you have no extended family or resources to help you prepare to care for your little baby? Refugee camp management are already stretched trying to provide the regular day to day needs of the adults therefore children and especially babies’ needs are just not able to be addressed. Newborns, despite being so tiny, need so many things that aren’t readily available to new mothers in refugee camps. We can provide a full kit including a Moses basket, bathtub, blankets, clothes, diapers, wipes, diaper cream and other essential items for $318. Fund a whole kit or a portion to help a baby and a mother.
Purpose: For $318 USD we buy locally an infant hygiene kit that addresses all their immediate needs at significant discount to retail prices. This kit includes a Moses basket, bathtub, diapers, wipes, diaper cream, baby wash, blankets and clothing. We will also be supplying much needed diapers in various camps as babies arrive.
Improving the lives of refugee children one child at a time.
We are a group of volunteers collecting urgently needed donations for those living in the Calais refugee camps. We believe that no person should be without access to basic human rights like shelter and warmth, and by collecting donations we can work to improve these conditions.
The situation in Calais is part of a wider migration crisis in Europe - caused largely by the displacement of people from war-torn countries such as Syria, Sudan, Afghanistan and Eritrea. In addition to offering support and assistance, we hope to change the perception of this crisis from one of hostility and fear to one of concern and compassion.
