Blankets, baby grows, baby boots, gloves, hats, dresses, toys!
We have been informed by our Senior Advisory Group, linked to in-country women’s groups, that people/charities are now being discouraged from sending handmade clothes, new and second hand (we send good quality second hand babygro’s, all of which have been checked over), because they are undermining any possibility of women in the recipient countries learning skills and creating their own businesses.
We want to thank you for your time and generosity in making and donating baby clothes to us. If you wish to continue contributing to the cause, you could support us by doing some fundraising for midwifery training and raising awareness about maternal mortality in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Thank you again,
Life for African Mothers
