Summary

This project will provide cloth diapers for children in poverty who are recovering from or living with congential challenges such as heart defects, colorectal malformations, colostomy, Hirschsprung's disease, and other medical challenges. These children live in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. They receive services from our Diaper Drop partner Resurge East Africa. All children deserve to be clean, dry, and healthy.

Challenge

Caregivers of those with special needs living in extreme poverty around the world have to choose between food & diapers. Though rescue centers, orphanages and missionaries exist to assist some of these populations, those organizations still struggle to find enough funding and supplies to help these babies, children, and adults. Imagine re-using a disposable diaper simply because you can't afford for your baby otherwise - that's a decision many of these organizations have made.

Solution

One cloth diaper can replace the need for over 400 (or more!) disposable diapers. This is an opportunity for tremendous cost savings. Through our Diaper Drops across the world, we are helping local organizations leverage the funds they have available to better care for their babies in other ways. In many places, organizations see decreased infant mortality rates and increased quality of life through cleaner environments and more availability of basic living needs.

Long-Term Impact

As our partner organizations 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 humans with special needs up for long term survival and a decent quality of life.
