Monthly, the supply chain involves 300 knitters, 60-70 maternity staff, 50+ supplier staff plus helpers and donors. When we add family and friends of the mothers then over 1000 people are involved or exposed to the bag each month.
So many of our mothers, both women and girls, are unemployed. They are exposed to relentless poverty and are living cramped into poor housing and shacks. We know, that each month, bags are given to up to 50 homeless mothers. Many babies are born of rape, incest and to mothers with AIDS.
The Hug a Baby bag is a love gift from a loving God, via his loving children and nurses, to the many, very needy mothers and babies we serve.
