A Fresh Start for Moms and Newborns
Being a new mom is hard. Being a new mom in poverty is overwhelming. Due to lack of education about safe sex and birth control, many young girls become pregnant in high school or just graduated. Many of them are unmarried, or pushed into marriage due to unplanned pregnancy, and are not able to afford the costs of raising a child.
Many children end up being raised by the grandparents, aunts and uncles while the parent’s must work to try and earn enough money.
When w visit the hospital we see a lot of new moms with their own mom’s and aunties, but no men. Oftentimes the husband or father must go to work daily, and these women are without their partner to share in the experience of a new child.
Giving birth in Buengkan hospital can cost at little as $1 thanks to govrnment policies in place such as welfare, but that cost does not incude any personalisd care, private room, extra assistance; it only covers the basics.
Many new mom’s feel overwhelmed by the burden ahead of them, and we want to provide just a little bit of assistance to lift that burden.
The costs of baby clothes, diapers, blannkets, crib, formula, vitamins, wet wipes and more add up quickly. Many people in poverty struggle to provide for themselves and there is a higher risk for postpartum depression.
Mundo Exchange wants these new mom’s to feel seen, cared for, and just a little bit less stressed about their newborn!We proide each mom with:
2 newborn onesies
1 outfit set (top and bottom)
It may not sound like much, but to someone who may have nothing to give their baby, having clean clothes to keep their baby warm and dressed means so much to them. With enough funding we can expand to include a couple of washable, re-useable diapers and maybe a small banket as well!
Give moms and their newborns a fresh start in life.
With your kind hearts and generous donations, we can show new moms they have support and encouragement as well as some fresh and clean clothes for their newborns.
