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!

Louisa

It’s a joy to introduce you to Louisa, loving Mom to Diego and Juan. She loves her children fiercely, and is unable to work because Diego lives with autism, schizophrenia and needs 24 hour care.

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 their lives were changed.

Louisa struggled to provide for Diego and Juan. Louisa was overjoyed when she received cloth menstrual pads, thanks to you. This simple gift provides Louisa with dignity, and hope. Affording period products was a daily struggle, and Louisa was forced to choose between diapers for Diego, medications, food and basic hygiene needs. We were also able to provide Diego with diapers.

Louisa and her family have settled into a new post-Maria normal, and are so grateful for your support.

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