Our partners around the globe face extreme challenges in helping those they serve survive and thrive. Our Global Network program supplies cloth diaper kits and other reusable hygiene essentials to help organizations support basic needs of children living in desperate situations. When we supply hygiene needs, our partners are able to keep children clean, dry and healthy while also re-allocating that budget to other essentials for successful programs.
We support partners around the world who desperately need our reusable cloth diaper kits to help save on funds for other basic needs while also maintaining health and sanitary conditions for the people they serve. Globally ... 1 in 6 children live in extreme poverty; Diaper need is linked to poor health; 3.1 million children die from undernutrition each year. A lack of diapers can cause caretakers to choose between food and diapers. We need to supply diapers to keep children healthy.
Providing cloth diapering kits supplies one of our partners' main basic needs to alleviate the financial burden of affording all basic needs for proper care. This opens up necessary funds to be able to stockpile certain main essentials. Reusable cloth items also provide ongoing relief for the organization.
Cloth diapering kits will remain as an essential resource for our partners to continue supporting the people they serve. This means expanded financial resources for other basic necessities in the longterm. It could also be a financial lifesaver for some organizations who will certainly face economic hardships because of the coronavirus.
