Hope Love Care teamed up with the Global Orphan Foundation this spring to help orphans in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo. They provided us with this update on the trip and we are so happy to hear the great impact the donation has made.
“During the first week of May, we traveled to Kinshasa and delivered the diapers to the orphanage. We provided training on how to use and care for the diapers. The orphanage caregivers were very appreciative as they were in great need of cloth diapers. The infants were wearing very soiled diapers made from cloth wrapped in a plastic bag. Again, thank you for your donation! You have made a true difference in these orphans lives.”
Nicki’s Diapers has teamed up with Jake’s Diapers again to help get cloth diapers on the bottoms of children around the world who need them. Eden is a young child in India who recently benefited from a Jake’s Diapers donation. Her foster mom sent this note of thanks:
Hello! I am attaching pictures of Eden, one of the little girls wearing cloth diapers that we got in our most recent shipment from you.
Eden is 1.5 years old and is fully blind (bilateral anophthalmia) and profoundly deaf. Eden is a candidate for cochlear implants and later this month (Feb 20) she is having surgery to receive bilateral cochlear implants. We are excited to see how this is going to change Eden’s life! Eden is one of our children that we just recently transitioned over to cloth diapers. She is not yet fully sponsored, so this means that we don’t have enough money coming in to care for all her needs.
Being able to save money on disposable diapers (which are expensive!) means that we can pay for Eden’s other needs without going into debt at the end of the month or without falling short and not being able to give her all we want. Eden is a silly girl who likes doing “yoga” – posing upside down on the floor and kicking her legs around! Please pray for her as she heads into surgery, that there will be no infection and that the surgery will be successful so Eden will be able to hear for the first time! We are so grateful to everyone who has provided cloth diapers to SCH so that we can better care for Eden and the other little ones she lives with.
We are thankful that Nicki’s Diapers Buy 1, Give 1 program has allowed us to donate baby necessity items, such as diapers, blankets and baby bottles, to babies in need domestically and overseas this year. Here are a few “Thank You’s” Hope, Love, Care has received this year for donations the program has made.
