We didn’t know it had happened until last month when we counted back. None of this could have happened without you, our sponsors and helpers. You have positively impacted the lives of 10,000+ very needy mothers and 10,000+ babies.
And it continues.
This February, with the help of Eddie and Bridget, we have started to provide bags for the new mums and babies at the Retreat Hospital in Cape Town. Between the 5 hospitals, Hug a Baby now provides 250 bags a month.
Thank you and well done everybody.
Due to donor generosity, we are now able to open four, month long classes each year, in which unemployed women are trained to use Industrial Sewing Machines.
The course gives the women experience on: fabric feed control; basic fabric weaves; hand, feet and eye co-ordination; marking, making and the cutting of patterns; scissor and cutting control; use of straight stitches and over lockers; threading and adjusting; producing a garment for themselves. Certificates are issued. Our hope is that these courses will open employment opportunities for some and for others to earn money working from home.
