DEAR FRIENDS OF THE BABY BOX
Our aim is to provide hope to new mothers, the poorest of the poor, by giving them a “box” filled with items which will help them care for their new baby. (Our baby boxes are now given out in canvas shopping bags, which are easier to carry). Every mother deserves the dignity of taking their new baby home in new clothes. Many of the women live in squatter camps and lack a partner or support structure. The high incidence of abandonment of new born babies in Gauteng is evidence of how many mothers feel totally overwhelmed and helpless themselves. The baby box is simple and doable.
