Challenge

Babies 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. Now imagine being hit by natural disaster, Hurricane Matthew, and the situation is much more dire.

Solution

Just 12 cloth diapers can diaper a baby from infancy through potty-training, meaning these babies can finally have diapers, instead of going without. Through our Diaper Drops in Haiti, we are helping local organizations leverage the funds they have available to better care for their babies and focus extremely limited resources on recovering and rebuilding from the devastating effects of Hurricane Matthew.

Long-Term Impact

As our partner organizations in Haiti continue to have their diaper needs solved, they are able to save funds and work on recovery efforts from Hurricane Matthew. Long term, they can work towards 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.
