Summary

Refugees around the world lack access to basic needs, including diapers. Forced to leave their homes due to conflict, violence, natural disasters, human rights violations, and persecution refugees struggle just to survive. This project provides cloth diapers at no cost to trusted partner agencies working with refugees worldwide. Cloth diapers provide a long-term solution from birth through potty-training, truly changing the lives of these children.

Challenge

Children are the most vulnerable of all populations. Refugee families struggle to meet the basic diapering needs of their children due to extreme poverty and challenging life situations. All babies deserve to be clean, dry, and healthy.

Solution

Just 12 cloth diapers can diaper a baby from infancy through potty-training, eliminating the need to pay for disposable diapers to care for this child. 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, medical procedures to increase adoption opportunity for the orphan, special needs children, improved quality of food (more protein!) - all steps that set these babies up for long term survival and productive members of society.
