Challenge

We received a few years ago, some fine beds made from wood, however keeping these clean has not been easy, also infestation of bedbugs are harder to eliminate on wood. We have sourced metal beds that 'grow' with the baby into pre-adolescence that will be ideal because infestations do not cling to metal and it will be easier to keep clean for the children.

Solution

Having easily maintained strong metal beds will make it easier to keep clean and can be used for several years and support babies/ children during their developing years. The wood splinters after a while and splinters cause problems for children and staff.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact is that fifteen new-born abandoned babies will have beds for their formative years. Should they be reunified with family the bed will accompany them, In the event that the child stays at our residential care facility they will sleep in clean, safe, hygienic and durable beds.
