Thank you for supporting Clean Diapers for Refugee Babies! We continue to provide clean diapers to hundreds of babies in Greece thanks to your help. In 2019, we provided a total of 272,482 diapers to refugee families. Many of these babies would otherwise only have one clean diaper per day.
In conjunction with our diaper program, one of our volunteers has developed a Staying Healthy curriculum. The modules have been created for distribution teams to teach the subjects in camps or community centers as requested by camp management. The feedback has been highly favorable!
In 2019, we also provided 325 training potties, 3,974 sanitary pads, and 136 strollers, among many other items. The need is so great, and we couldn't help without your generosity. Thank you!

Clean Diapers for 150 Refugee Babies!
By Jenny Belardi - Chief Development Officer
Diaper insecurity is a reality for most refugees. In fact, diapers are often the first thing that families ask for. Families living in refugee camps are provided one clean diaper per day. Because of this, many babies suffer from diaper rash and other complications.
Because of your giving, more than 150 refugee babies at four refugee camps in Greece now have a steady supply of clean diapers. This means happy babies and relieved parents.
Team 61 was on the ground in Greece in November, and had the pleasure of distributing diapers to many of these families. The sigh of relief was palpable among the families who received packs for their little ones.
Thank you for showing up and saying YES for refugee families. Your donations are making a huge impact in the lives of many.
