At Baby Matters we are delighted to support a number of great charities in Kenya that supports women & children who are not as fortunate as us.
Well it is that time of the year again when I send out as much as possible to Kenya in support of the orphanages, birth centre, immunisation program and for the first time a home for disabled children.
Kenya collection date: 1st of Nov – 31st of Nov 2014
Is your loft full of outgrown baby or toddler clothing?
So Please donate these to our Autumn Babymatters Kenya Appeal
- Baby and toddler clothing (for children up to five) including
- Summer & winter clothing
- Bedding, sleeping bags, reusable nappies, small toys & books.
- Unopened tins of baby formula for orphaned babies.
If you can manage it, please also make a donation towards the cost of shipping. As a guide, we need to find £4 to cover each supermarket-sized bag of items.
Where do your items go?
Former Maidenhead Babymatters mum Angela who lived in Kenya arranges for the items to go to her friends still there. They in turn take the items to orphanages, birthing units and schools and partner with local charities to distribute the items directly to Kenya children who need our help the most. This includes a charity helping children being raised in prison and a mobile medical unit that last autumn distributed over 300 of our clothing packs to mothers and children living in severe poverty in both urban and isolated rural areas.
We collection twice a year in May and November, watch this space for the dates.
