Alana

It's a joy to introduce you to Alana at our Diaper Drop Sarah's Covenant Homes in India. Through your generosity, we're able to provide Sarah's Covenant Homes (SCH) with diapers for all ages of persons with special needs.  

Alana came into SCH's care in November of 2014 because the government orphanage she was living in could not properly take care of her specific needs. It took Alana about a week to warm up when she arrived at SCH. She was very fearful and shy. Slowly she began opening up and now she is often smiling and interacting with others. Alana has cerebral palsy and is nonverbal. She has no cognitive delay and can respond by nodding or using some hand movements. Alana is a bright, intelligent young lady who communicates much through her eyes and facial expressions.

Alana is doing really well in Jubilee Home. Alana is very smart and is enjoying our onsite special education classes. She communicates through gestures and pointing at what she wants and feeds herself when food is placed in her hand. She is working on fine motor skills with things like giant beads puzzles and blocks. She loves to play on the trampoline and enjoy hammocks and swings. She can go from lying down to sitting on her own, can go up and down stairs independently, and moves by scooting around.

Everyday her loving caregivers are blown away by this smart girl and her sweet presence, and consider themselves truly blessed to know her. She is full of life, love, and happiness!

Thanks for helping Alana and other children like her!

Joyful Diego

It’s a joy to introduce you to sweet Diego. He’s a tender loving 12 year old who loves going to school, long hugs, baths, and playing with his brother. He lives with autism, schizophrenia, and ADHD and relies on the support of diapers to keep him clean, dry, and healthy.

When Hurricane Maria struck, Diego really struggled because his environment had changed so much. Because of the devastation to his school, which he loved ferociously, he had to change schools and so many other aspects of his life were changed.

His Mom, Louisa, struggled to provide for him. Because of his special needs, he needs a caregiver 24 hours a day, which means she can’t work. Affording diapers, medication, and food was a daily struggle. Louisa was overjoyed when she received a complete set of cloth diapers for him. With his basic needs met, she no longer has to choose between diapers, medication, and food.

Diego and his family have settled into a new post-Maria normal. He’s enjoying a new school and is back to his giggly loving self again.

Thanks for helping Diego & Louisa. I encourage you to reach me at stephanie@jakesdiapers.org with any questions you may have, I’d love to hear from you.

Thanks for helping babies!

I'm excited to share with you an update from Cuba! Our partners at a local church returned to Cuba again, bringing along additional cloth diapers, thanks to you! 

Stacy visited a church they had visited the previous year. This church serves families that include families affected by the hurricane in 2017. The families in this church are so thankful for the cloth diapers, and have been using and recycling them throughout the church and province. They were so happy to see Stacy bring more, to help more babies have their basic diapering needs met. 

Thanks for helping babies and empowering families!
