Summary

Vieques Island was devastated by Hurricane Maria. Families already living in poverty, now amplified by Maria's destruction, are struggling even more to afford the basic need of diapers for their children. With no federal safety-net programs (WIC, food stamps) covering the cost of diapers, families find themselves choosing between food & diapers. This microproject will provide complete supplies of cloth diapers to last from birth to potty training for the children of Vieques Island.

Challenge

Families in Vieques have lost homes and livelihoods. Just struggling to survive after Maria, these families are unable to afford diapers for their babies. Your support will provide complete supplies of cloth diapers (panales de tela) to the children who call Vieques home.

Solution

By providing a complete supply of cloth diapers, these children will have enough diapers to stay clean, dry, and healthy. Families will no longer have to choose between food & diapers, and will be able to focus on other urgent needs as they rebuild and recover.

Long-Term Impact

As our partner organizations in Puerto Rico continue to have their diaper needs solved, they are able to save funds and plan for future improvements in their care. This can mean adding educational programs, offering better healthcare, improved quality of food (more protein!) - all steps that set these babies up for long term survival and productive members of society.
